Japan and Taiwan are important economic and trade partners. They have a long history of economic exchange, and enjoy a very close relationship. Especially in recent years, agreements such as the “Arrangement between the Interchange Association and the Association of East Asian Relations for the Mutual Cooperation on the Liberalization, Promotion and Protection of Investment” (“the Investment Arrangement between Japan and Taiwan”, signed in September 2011) and the “Agreement between the Interchange Association and the Association of East Asian Relations for the Avoidance of Double Taxation and the Prevention of Fiscal Evasion with respect to Taxes on Income” (“the Japan-Taiwan Tax Agreement”, signed in November 2015) have further enhanced the favorable environment for their mutual investment and economic exchange.
