Taiwan Stock Exchange is promoting foreign listings

The Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) is striving to guide and promote international listings. For instance, TWSE, GreTai Securities Market and the Taiwan Trade Center in San Francisco jointly hosted an event for potential issuers. One theme was ‘Ideal partner in Asia’, a forum held in Silicon Valley on 21 July 2009. There were over 200 attendees, such as senior executives of high-tech companies, venture capitalist, financial experts, certified public accountants and lawyers. 

TWSE has already held many similar overseas symposia on promoting foreign high-quality companies’ listings and visited many other entities run by Taiwanese entrepreneurs. Up to July 2009, there have been 18 foreign companies which have signed the counseling contract with underwriters, and 2 foreign companies have issued TDRs in TWSE.  

Taiwan Stock Exchange is looking for more high-quality foreign companies to take advantage of the capital market and quality services for listing.
