  • The project has staged a nationwide campaign to significantly bridge the digital divide to these underprivileged SMEs.

1.1 million strong, SMEs constitute 90% of all businesses in Taiwan.

800,000 (73%) are micro-enterprises, employing 20 or less people.

A total of 6 million people are employed by SMEs, working an average of 10 or more hours a day.

Taiwan SMEs are known for their ability to quickly respond to market changes and seize new opportunities.
