Mr. Liu Chi Chuan, Deputy Director General of BIP, gives welcome speech.
The Bureau of Industrial Parks (BIP) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) held the first year-end press conference on November 13, 2023. At the conference, Deputy Director General Liu Chi-Chuan announced that the BIP will adopt the vision of "smart, safe, and sustainable" as its governing principle. BIP aims to actively promote five major missions, including "providing quality spaces, counseling companies upgrade, implementing low-carbon safety, promoting smart services, and creating a friendly workplace." These initiatives are expected to inject continuous growth momentum into domestic industrial parks' development.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs completed its organizational restructuring on September 26 of this year (2023), meanwhile, with the formation of the BIP through the integration of the original Export Processing Zone Administration and the Industrial Parks Division of Industrial Development Bureau. The MOEA states that the establishment of the BIP is intended to concentrate expertise and resources for better management of industrial parks, thereby optimizing the investment environment for industries in the country. Currently, the BIP is the largest nationwide industrial park management organization, covering an area of 33,000 hectares, including over 75% of the industrial land in the country. The industrial output of companies within BIP's jurisdiction reaches up to NT$9 trillion, making it a cornerstone of the country's industrial development. Therefore, the transformation of industrial parks is crucial for the nation's industrial growth.
The Bureau of Industrial Parks of the Ministry of Economic Affairs stated that during the reorganization, the BIP has simultaneously established four branches in Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, and Kaohsiung-Pingtung, which could handle administrative tasks in each jurisdiction promptly. Doing so could improve the situation in the past when businesses in industrial parks nationwide had to be sent to Taipei (Industrial Development Bureau) review will greatly improve administrative efficiency. Additionally, the BIP has achieved notable performance in various aspects this year, including:
I. Space Expansion: Initiatives such as the development of five major industrial parks and three technology industrial parks, the construction of two smart buildings, and acceleration of land renewal and activation, increasing of approximately 300 hectares of industrial spaces.
II. Investment Facilitation: Counseling several international companies to accelerate the completion of their factory construction project, shaping a more complete cluster in the semiconductor, optoelectronics, and smart manufacturing industries, contributing to an investment promotion of approximately NT$47 billion for the year.
III. Industrial Upgrade: Establishment of three distinctive supply chain alliances, assisting companies in obtaining resources worth NT$140 million; counsel provided to 18 companies for smart upgrades, receiving subsidies totaling NT$16.5 million, and facilitating research and development investments exceeding NT$340 million; completion of 25 digital transformation demonstrations, generating a value of NT$417 million.
IV. Net Zero Sustainability: Establishment of the "Low Carbon Transformation One-Stop Service Platform," counsel for the formation of a low-carbon demonstration alliance, resulting in an annual carbon reduction of over 5,000 metric tons; promotion of solar installations in the parks, accumulating a total capacity of 1,359 MW and generating 154,225,000 kWh annually, equivalent to the carbon reduction of 2,018 Da'an Forest Park.
Deputy Director General Liu emphasized that the establishment of the BIP signifies a new milestone in the development of the country's industrial parks. In the future, in addition to actively implementing the governing vision of "smart, safe, and sustainable," the BIP will adopt a "forward-thinking" approach, aligning with industrial trends, integrating the advantages of regulations and management systems from two industrial parks, promoting system integration, actively seeking more resources for renewal and digitization, and promoting exchange and cooperation among cross-industrial park companies to expand integrated benefits. This approach aims to enhance business opportunities for industrial park companies, thereby boosting the competitiveness of domestic industries.
