AmCham Special Luncheon
At this special luncheon, AmCham will announce and analyze the results of its annual Business Climate Survey – which includes findings that may be useful reference for the Taiwan government in setting economic policy directions.
This is an excellent opportunity for members to learn the strengths and weaknesses affecting the business environment in Taiwan. The survey was sent to around 400 voting representatives of AmCham Taipei member companies (generally the top executive) for them to share their views.
