The Speed of Production

By estimation, 75% of PCs installed in the world with Windows® OS are produced by
Taiwanese IT Companies. That's why "Taiwan Inside®" would probably be the most
suitable description of Taiwan's vitality and its position in the worldwide IT Industry [MyCS1105Project:1] .

Back Taiwan ICT Statistics


In March 2005, Internet World Stats reported that there were 12.2 million Internet users in Taiwan representing 53.5% of the population, the vast majority of whom are broadband users. As Taiwan's broadband and wireless communications infrastructure projects move toward completion and payment, data protection and regulatory mechanisms are put in place. Taiwan's digital content sector will experience even higher growth potential[MyCS1105Project:10] .

Taiwan has become a world-class manufacturing centre and its advanced manufacturing capability is highly regarded in the global ICT market. In terms of production value or volume, a list of products made in and made by Taiwan is ranked No. 1 globally[MyCS1105Project:11] . Some of the examples are Motherboards, WLAN, WLAN NIC, Notebook PCs, VoIP Routers and Modems.

The "e-Taiwan" project is designed to breathe new life into ICT, provide highly efficient government services, and raise the competitiveness of the IT industry. The project provides the people of Taiwan with ongoing learning opportunities, and accelerate Taiwan's transition to a knowledge-based economy[MyCS1105Project:12] .

To make knowledge more readily attainable, about US$1 billion was allocated to expand the area in which wireless internet access is available. Running from 2004 to 2008, the project builds on two of Taiwan's strengths: one of the highest cell phone penetration rates, and production of the highest amount of wireless LAN cards in the world.

Taiwan's achievements in e-government have been praised by many countries wishing to improve administrative efficiency. In the 2006 global e-government survey conducted by Brown University in the United States, Taiwan ranked second. There are currently 841 online services available to the public through the Citizen Digital Certificate system. The number of users has exceeded 4 million, and the e-services available include tax filing, business registration, downloadable forms for household registration, and access to numerous application forms and databases. The government recently approved plans to enable people to pay telephone, water, and electricity bills online.

    quite a number of missing citations needed. we will have to work towards citing and referencing all the information we obtain.

    i believe being able to verify the source of information is one of the purpose of WIKI when it first started. so do remember to include it yeah?

    if possible it'll be good to have it anchored like Taiwan ICT, so readers who want to find out the source straight away can click on it to verify, and be led back to where he/she was reading again.

    Hi Yvonne,

    Some of the diagrams here are without citations. Will be nice if there is a reference for each diagram, even if it came from the same source. This way our readers will have a better picture of where our information came from.
