With their tight upstream and downstream structures and unrivalled efficiency and flexibility, there clusters are among the most competitive of their kind globally.
High-tech products are not the only flourishing industry in Taiwan. With continuous innovation, handcrafted goods and traditional industries that grew out of the country's local culture have also gained a competitive edge.
This film follows the stories of the growth of four unique industry clusters in Taiwan: the yacht industry in Kaohsiung City; the orchid industry in Chiayi and Tainan counties; the saxophone industry in Houli; and the machinery industry in Taichung. Each of these clusters has become internationally renowned, and as the film demonstrates, even though their industry structures have changed, they have managed to adapt and remain leaders in their fields.
