Reciprocal investment across the Taiwan Strait has benefited from a much opener business environment.
Taiwan opened to mainland investment at the end of June last year. Since then, the island's economic authority has approved 52 investment projects to the value of around 77 million US dollars. The mainland has also seen a sharp increase in investment from Taiwan.
In the first five months of this year, the Taiwan authority approved investments in 187 projects on the mainland. New investment from Taiwan on the mainland climbed to around 4.6 billion US dollars from January to May this year, up almost 240 percent year-on-year.
