CTSP administration poised to solicit enterprises in Advanced Research Park and Erlin Science Park.

Taipei, Aug. 6, 2012 (CENS) -- The Central Taiwan Science Park (CTSP) Administration will begin soliciting enterprises to operate in Advanced Research Park and Erlin Science Park in August, with more than 100 companies already submitting applications, said Yang Wen-ke, director-general of the CTSP Administration.

Yang said that the CTSP Administration will hold two large-sized conferences on enterprise invitations in August, with the first one slated on August 8 for Advanced Research Park, and the other on August 15 for Erlin Science Park. Yang continued that Advanced Research Park, with a land area of about 15 hectares for development, is set up mainly for the cultural and creative sector and will be able to accommodate 200 enterprises in the future when fully developed. Additionally, the National Science Council will also help to invite tenders from abroad for building hotels and exhibition halls to add value to the park.

On the other hand, transformed from an obsolete, traditional industrial park into a precision machinery industry park, the Erlin Science Park is spread over a land area of 123 hectares as part of CTSP, and for machinery suppliers. Yang said optimistically that over 100 enterprises are expected to participate in the Aug. 15 conference.

Worth mentioning is that the CTSP Administration has joined hands with Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI) to solicit local machinery makers to operate in the Erlin Science Park. TAMI said that based on its preliminary survey over 100 enterprises polled have shown intense interest in investing in the park, with their estimated investments totaling between NT$50 billion and NT$80 billion.

Inaugurated in mid-2003, CTSP is composed of several smaller industrial parks, including the said two ones, as one of Taiwans top three science parks. From January through June, 2012, the CTSP Administration newly approved a total of 129 companies from different sectors to operate in these parks to achieve accumulative investments worth NT$47.2 billion, 2.4 times more than it did in the same period of 2011.
