• Who is Formosan Business Support Ltd. (FBS)?

    FBS is a private limited enterprise which main goal is to help international companies to settle down in the Asia-Pacific market starting from the island of Ilha Formosa (Taiwan). Normally there is a learning process between FBS and client before actual kicking off the project, because FBS needs to understand the client and the nature of the business before it can design solutions to customer's needs.

  • Why choosing the name Formosan Business Support?

    As some people might already know the name “Taiwan” is highly controversial since the international status of the main island Taiwan, Penghu islands, Kinmen and Matsu never have been solved after the World War II. Before 1949 (relocation of the Republic of China exile government) to the upper maintain geographic names, Taiwan was know as Ilha Formosa (originally given by Portuguese crew on a Dutch trading in the 17th century). This Portuguese name was officially used by the Dutch East Indian Corporation and even General Douglas Macarthur used them during World War II and allied invasion against Japan (at that time Ilha Formosa was a prefecture of the Japan Empire). In the aftermath of the civil war between the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT), Taiwan has been claimed by both governments to be a province and part of China, but not as a country. FBS doesn’t have any political stand on this. In order to avoid any political or copyright issue, we choose to use the name Formosan, because it is not claimed by any government or company since the end of the Dutch East Indian Corporation.

  • Does FBS serve in mainland China (PRC=People’s Republic of China)?

    Yes.

    East Asia and Pacific Region includes three of the world’s 10 largest economies: China, Japan, and Indonesia. These economies accounted for almost two-fifths of global growth in 2015, more than twice the combined contribution of all other emerging regions. Among them, China leads the region’s emerging economies which have been supporting the modest global recovery since the global financial crisis. In order to catch China's economy booming, FBS also provides business support in China and so far has made a hospital chain successful in the market.
