From upstream to downstream, the production value and export value of Taiwan’s electrical and electronics industries account for about half of Taiwan’s total manufacturing production value and export value. TEEMA’s member industries contribute tremendously to Taiwan’s economy, making them and the association the most important, hi-tech, professional and forward-thinking industries and industry association in Taiwan.
