The economic relationship between Japan and Taiwan has remained strong over the years. During those years, despite the rather small market of Taiwan, which has a population of approximately 23 million, Japan has continued not only merchandise trade with Taiwan but also investment and business expansion into Taiwan by using it as a trial market for the Chinese market, or by positioning Taiwanese companies as business partners in Greater China. Currently, that trend is prominent mainly in the food & beverage, sightseeing and service industries.
