Taiwan moves up to 3rd in BERI’s latest global investment report



3 September 2018.

Taiwan moved up one spot to third among 50 major countries and territories surveyed in the latest Profit Opportunity Recommendation report by U.S.-based Business Environment Risk Intelligence SA.

Finishing equal with Germany and Norway but behind Switzerland and Singapore in that order, Taiwan outpaced its Asian neighbors South Korea in seventh; Japan, 10th; and China, 15th. Taiwan’s combined score of 68 earned it a second-best investment rating of 1B, indicating that conditions merit sustained commitment of equity. This was the same for Singapore, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands and South Korea, with only Switzerland achieving the top 1A rating. Of the three rankings comprising the combined score, Taiwan finished 13th in political risks globally. According to BERI, the country’s political ratings are stable and economic conditions are expected to improve under President Tsai Ing-wen’s leadership.

Concerning operations risk, Taiwan topped Asia and ranked sixth globally on par with Canada and trailing Switzerland, Germany, Australia, the Netherlands and U.S. in that order.
