ATIP02. 042: IT trends & Taiwans Institute for Information Industry

ABSTRACT: This report summarizes recent information technology (IT) developments in Taiwan. The IT roadmap in Taiwan is mainly proposed and implemented by III (Institute for Information Industry) in collaboration with companies and government. The main thrust in IT is related to hardware. There is growth in emerging IT areas such as broadband, LCD, and Internet appliances. This report surveys recent Taiwanese IT trends and how III contributes to IT development. For completeness, we also briefly describe one lab at ITRI, the Industrial Technology Research Institute.

ATIP offers a full range of information services including reports, assessments, briefings, visits, sample procurements, workshops, cultural/business sensitivity training, and liaison activities, all performed by our on-the- ground multilingual experts.
