SIP authorities on Nov 27 convened a meeting with a number of representatives of SIP-based Taiwanese-funded enterprises to learn about their needs for support from the authorities.
SIP is now home to nearly 650 Taiwanese-funded enterprises with a total investment in the area exceeding US$ 10 billion. The local authorities have been sparing no efforts to bolster the development of the enterprises, offering them the best administrative services and setting up Jinji Lake Taiwan Youth Pioneer Park which, opened in April, is designed to give young Taiwanese a helping hand in starting their own businesses.
It is worth mentioning that SIP has ranked first for four straight years on Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association’s “List of Most Recommendable Chinese Mainland Places for Investors” in terms of comprehensive strength.
At the event, the participants from Eslite Bookstore, AU Optronics and other Taiwanese-funded enterprises gave the local officials a detailed account of their business operations in SIP, challenges needed to solve and future development plans, and shared their opinions on local business support policies and services.
Wu Qingwen, member of the Standing Committee of CPC Suzhou Committee and secretary of SIP Party Working Committee, spoke at the event. He promised to provide consistent support to Taiwanese-funded enterprises in the future and disclosed that a WeChat group will be created to enhance exchanges with the enterprises.
