Building Momentum for a Taiwan-U.S. BTA

The current unprecedented opportunities for business and technological cooperation between Taiwan and the U.S. was the theme of a Taiwan-U.S. Business Roundtable this morning co-organized by the Chinese National Association of Industry and Commerce, Taiwan (CNAIC) and the American Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan. The event was held at the Palais de Chine Hotel.

In his opening remarks, CNAIC Chairman Por-Fong Lin recalled that a year ago this month the two sponsoring organizations issued a joint statement calling on the American and Taiwan governments to begin negotiations on a bilateral trade agreement (BTA). He noted that subsequent developments have improved the environment for taking that step and increased its importance.

Echoing that sentiment, AmCham Chairman CW Chin referred to the current situation as a “special moment in the relationship” between the two countries. The challenges presented by the COVID pandemic only brought them closer together, with Taiwan donating some 10 million surgical masks to the U.S. and the U.S. helping to provide Taiwan with much needed vaccines.

Another positive development – recent revival of the bilateral TIFA process for trade and investment negotiations after a five-year hiatus – was cited by Jen-Ni Yang, Deputy Trade Representative of Taiwan’s Office of Trade Negotiations. Bureau of Foreign Trade Director General Cynthia Kiang stressed the increasingly close cooperation between Taiwan and the U.S. in helping maintain strong and stable supply chains.

A keynote speech by Professor Philip Yang of National Taiwan University, a former Deputy Secretary General of Taiwan’s National Security Council, discussed other favorable trends, including signs that as part of its Indo-Pacific strategy the U.S. is paying greater attention to Taiwan’s strategic value. At the same time, he noted pressures arising from the growing U.S.-China economic competition, especially in the technology sphere.

In a roundtable discussion moderated by Regent Taipei Executive Chairman Steven Pan, business executives from both domestic and multinational companies contributed their expertise regarding the industries regarded as having the greatest potential for collaboration between U.S. and Taiwan companies – semiconductors and other ICT/5G-related products, medical technology and other healthcare items, electric vehicles (EV), and the energy and chemical sectors.

Pan summarized the panel’s key recommendations as follows:

  • The Taiwan and U.S. governments should regularly coordinate regarding industrial policy and promote strategic public-private partnerships on critical supply chains for the ICT 5G, medical technology, and EV sectors.
  • U.S. companies should leverage Taiwan’s sophisticated manufacturing platform to create a regional technology hub for Asia.
  • Taiwan and the U.S. should take advantage of the Taiwanese talent pool in both Taiwan and the U.S. in support of a manufacturing renaissance.

The semiconductor field is considered particularly promising for U.S.-Taiwan cooperation because of the complementary nature of the industries on the two sides, said John Chen, Senior Director of the Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute (MIC) of the Institute for Information Industry. Taiwan is strong in the foundry and packing/testing segments, while the U.S. historically dominates the design and marketing functions.

A session moderated by Peter Huang, Secretary General of the Importers and Exporters Association of Taipei, featured a special presentation by AmCham Taiwan President Andrew Wylegala introducing the concept of a Taiwan Commercial Initiative (TCI). The Initiative would seek to promote a series of concrete steps that hopefully would lead to a BTA.

A corollary initiative was set out by former AmCham Chairman and President Leo Seewald, who advocated conclusion of a bilateral tax agreement between Taiwan and the U.S. to increase certainty for business, boost investment, and reduce tax disputes.

Closing remarks by the two business organizations emphasized their commitment to continue working together to achieve the goal of upgrading bilateral economic relations through a BTA.

In Memoriam, Dr. E.F. Einhorn (1918-2021)

Longtime AmCham Taiwan member, Ephraim Ferdinand Einhorn died September 15, 2021 — three days after his 103rd birthday — in National Taiwan University Hospital after an extended illness. He will be buried in Israel.

Born in Vienna, Einhorn was a naturalized American citizen who had lived in Taiwan since 1975. He had many contacts in Eastern Europe and over the years assisted Taiwan in developing connections with such countries as Poland and Lithuania. At times his AmCham membership was held in the name of the Polish Chamber of Commerce. He was also president of the Taipei-based World Patent Trading Co. and, trained as a Rabbi, he was the spiritual leader of the Taiwan Jewish Community.

In 2016, the AmCham Board of Governors presented Einhorn with a certificate as a Lifetime Honorary Member. A TOPICS article at the time introduced the man and his achievements.

Congratulations to Longstanding Chamber Members

AmCham Taiwan came into being 70 years ago this month upon completion of official registration with the government. Of the five founding company members, only one – the Socony-Vacuum Oil Co. – continues to maintain a presence in the Chamber through its successor company ExxonMobil. The history of both the Exxon and Mobil precursors of the company formed by their merger in 1999 can be traced back to Socony-Vacuum, which itself was an offshoot of the Standard Oil Co. founded by John D. Rockefeller.

AmCham’s records don’t go back far enough to establish the date of entry into the organization of other early members. But the office does have a copy of a membership roster from 1986 – 35 years ago or the midpoint in the Chamber’s history to date. On the occasion of AmCham Taiwan’s 70th anniversary, we would like to extend our thanks and congratulations to the following companies that have been members continuously since the first half of the Chamber’s existence:

AmCham Webinar Highlights Investment and Public-Private Partnership Opportunities in Tackling the Climate Crisis

On September 8, AmCham Taiwan hosted a special event with Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), America’s largest wildlife conservation organization. The NWF is a longstanding partner of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Taiwan’s Environmental Protection Administration. Andrew Wylegala, president of AmCham Taiwan, introduced O’Mara at the virtual event. In his opening remarks, Wylegala discussed the alignment between the U.S. and Taiwan’s goals to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

O’Mara’s presentation highlighted the escalating climate crisis and explained how collective action and public-private partnerships are vital to achieving the U.S. and Taiwan’s energy and environmental goals. He stated his belief that clean energy will be the greatest market opportunity of most of our lifetimes, but also underscored the massive investment opportunities for Taiwan in the areas of energy efficiency, smart buildings, advanced transportation, education, and agriculture. He explained that the Chamber’s members are well-positioned to “do well and do good” at the same time, as the climate-friendly choice is often the more profitable choice. AmCham Taiwan members have vast opportunities to benefit from job and wealth creation in green energy, as well as to make an impact on mitigating the climate threat.

In the Q&A section, Mr. O’Mara discussed President Biden’s “Build Back Better” public-private partnership initiative and the interaction among the U.S. EPA, Taiwan EPA, AmCham members, and AIT to work toward net zero goals. Wylegala highlighted Chamber member Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.’s (TSMC) efforts to increase its use of renewables and conserve water, as well as the trend among AmCham’s financial services industry members to adopt green bonds. The NWF looks forward to future opportunities to partner with the Chamber on helping the U.S. and Taiwan reach net zero by 2050.
