In 2019, Taiwan's healthcare industry was ranked the best in the world by CEOWORLD – a prestigious magazine in the United States. This is testament to Taiwan's efforts in investing in infrastructure, examination equipment, medical services, as well as professional staff.
Many Taiwanese hospitals and medical enterprises have achieved outstanding achievements such as Taipei Veterans General Hospital where 98 per cent of bone cancer patients have reported no complications after surgery; Cheng Kung International Hospital where 88-97 per cent of patients live more than one year after organ transplant surgery.
Since 2016, Taiwan has launched the New Southern Policy to strengthen bilateral economic development with Southeast Asian countries. Among countries in the Southeast Asian region, Vietnam is considered the top choice for Taiwanese businesses. In the medical field particularly, many Taiwanese businesses and hospitals have signed and teamed up with Vietnamese medical units.
