Dear Visitor,

I welcome you to the website of the Trade Office of Swiss Industries in Taipei. Let me briefly outline our priorities for you:

Since 1982, our office has been supporting Swiss business interests in Taiwan. The strong focus on technology and innovation in both Switzerland and Taiwan results in successful business relations. Since 2010, our trade volume has almost doubled and is steadily growing. There are over 120 Swiss companies present here, and trade promotion continues to be a key area of our activities.

We also facilitate educational, scientific and cultural exchange between Switzerland and Taiwan by bringing people and relevant institutions together. Furthermore, we are tasked with highlighting Switzerland as a top tourism destination. In fact, we would love to see even more visitors from Taiwan in Switzerland.

Over the past 20 years, the Swiss community in Taiwan has increased by almost 50%, to about 350 nationals. Whether you are one of them or just passing through, our consular section is your point of contact for consular services you may need while here. We are committed to always providing you with reliable and high quality services.

Thank you for your interest in Switzerland! To stay in touch and up to date with our activities, I invite you to subscribe to our Swiss Community Newsletter and to follow us on Facebook. For further information you may also contact us at taipei@eda.admin.ch. I look forward to personally engage with you in the years to come.

Sincerely yours,

Claudia Fontana Tobiassen
