Why the Hunter Region and Newcastle?

Australia’s largest regional economy, with annual output over $40 billion.

Governments are energetically promoting the region’s development and international economic engagement.

Greater Newcastle is home to Australia’s seventh largest urban population.

Close to Sydney, the region has the highly developed infrastructure, including a major airport equipped for international flights and a magnificent deep water harbour.

The Port of Newcastle is the world’s largest coal exporting port and the third largest port in Australia.

The region’s significant industries include aerospace, defense, advanced manufacturing, coal mining, education, tourism, grape growing and wine production and other agriculture, including horse breeding.

Taiwan – a modern, high-tech economy and one of Australia’s largest trading partners

Taiwan, population 23 million, is one of Australia’s ten largest export markets. Investment from Taiwan in Australia’s energy, minerals, and other industries, including in the Hunter Region, is accelerating.

Like Australia, Taiwan is an island country of high civility, a parliamentary democracy with a strong legal system and an independent judiciary.

An advanced economy with high per-capita incomes, the island’s strengths in ICT and other high-tech industries are world-renowned.

Taiwan’s entrepreneurial business people have decades of experience in international trade and investment.

Taiwan has a mature and well-regulated finance sector, with strong financial institutions and a large pool of savings.

Taiwan, one of the largest investors in China, is a gateway to the mainland.
