Focus: Taiwan Expo
Taipei, Taiwan - April 12, 2017

ILW offers limited EB-5 exhibition opportunities at the Taiwan Expo

Taiwan is the ideal country to supplement your China raise because:

  • Taiwan is one of the larger EB-5 Markets, with about 125 to 150 investments per year raised
  • Taiwan has an agent structure similar to China (but lower cost than China) - there are approximately 60 agents in Taiwan, regulated under Taiwanese law
  • The language is the same in both China and Taiwan thus simplifying preparation of marketing material
  • Taiwan is very close geographically to China, so jet lag is minimized and productive time is maximized

Taiwan Expo:

  • You will meet licensed Taiwanese Agents. You will speak on a panel to the assembled Taiwanese agents.
  • Please bring brochures, PowerPoint presentation, table displays and business cards.
  • The Expo hall will include a seminar theater with booths at the back of the room. Taiwanese agents visit booths and attend the seminars.
