Strategic Consulting & Advocacy
Council members receive tactical and strategic advice on how to succeed in the Taiwan market, and the Council supports efforts by our members to secure new business opportunities in Taiwan.

The Council can identify decision-makers, assist in setting appointments and arranging meetings, make introductions to top officials in Taiwan and in the U.S., as well as help recommend appropriate courses of action in dealing with specific issues and problems.

The Council also does advocacy work on major projects for our members, and has been effective in dealing with many matters, including multi-billion dollar equipment sales, market access issues, contractual difficulties, profit repatriation, etc.


Relationship Building
One of the Council’s greatest strengths lies in having direct access to the highest levels of Taiwan’s government and business community, as well as to senior levels of the U.S. government both in the Executive Branch and in Congress.

The Council works closely with the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), the US Department of Commerce, the United States Trade Representative (USTR), the Small Business Administration (SBA), and the Trade Development Agency (TDA) to identify business trends and opportunities with Taiwan for Council members.

We have a very good working relationship with Taiwan’s representative offices in the US - both with the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO) in Washington D.C., as well as with the TECO branch offices throughout the US. In addition, the Council works with Taiwan government organizations in Taipei, especially the Ministry of Economic Affairs and its Bureau of Foreign Trade, as well as with the Ministries of Finance and Foreign Affairs, the Council for Economic Planning and Development (CEPD), and the Legislative Yuan (LY).

The Council is frequently called upon by the U.S. Government to express its views with regard to US-Taiwan business activities, as well as to offer guidance on sector-specific issues.


Partnerships
The Council works closely with its counterpart in Taiwan, the ROC-USA Business Council, as well as with the American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei, not only on events and meetings, but on furthering the interests of US-Taiwan trade.

In Washington, we partner with think-tanks and other trade associations and Asia-Pacific organizations to organize events and meetings on issues of mutual interest. We also partner with sector-specific organizations like GSA, SEMI North America, TSIA, and others to cooperate on events and to conduct advocacy on behalf of our members.
