Electronics giant Yageo to invest NT$10 billion in Taiwan’s Kaohsiung

Passive components maker is latest Taiwanese company to 'return home' amid U.S.-China trade war

By Matthew Strong,Taiwan News, Staff Writer
2018/11/08 16:56



(Taiwan News) – Yageo Corporation (國巨), a Taiwanese manufacturer of passive components for the electronics industry, is to invest more than NT$10 billion (US$326 million) in Kaohsiung, in another example of top Taiwanese companies returning to the island.

The company makes passive devices, such as resistors, capacitors, and inductors, for consumer, automotive and industrial clients.

Yageo approved a proposal Thursday to purchase a plot of more than 20,000 square meters in Kaohsiung’s Dafa industrial zone for NT$790 million (US$25.7 million) as the location for a new factory, the Central News Agency reported. The plan was only the start of a project to invest at least NT$10 billion over three years, the company said.

Yageo said its basic strategy in the face of the recent U.S.-China trade war was still to leave its roots in Taiwan while continuing to develop around the world. The island’s government has been encouraging Taiwanese businesses, which over the past decades invested massively in China, to return home and focus more on manufacturing in Taiwan.

When Apple Inc. published a list of its 200 major suppliers last March, at least three Yageo plants, two in the Chinese cities of Suzhou and Dongguan, and one in Kaohsiung, were featured, CNA reported.

Yageo was officially founded in 1989 by the brothers Wood (陳木元) and Pierre Chen (陳泰銘).

Reversal on rail system will hurt Kaohsiung
Taipei Times Excerpt

The construction of public transportation networks has a profound impact on urban development. Such projects must first undergo an evaluation of route priorities based on the entire network, comprehensive planning and organization, environmental impact assessments and changes to urban planning. Proposals are then submitted to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications and the National Development Council for review before approval by the Executive Yuan.

The basic network design must then pass a review by the Executive Yuan’s Public Construction Commission before bidding can begin to produce detailed designs. Before construction can begin, a traffic maintenance plan must be completed and reviewed by the commission.

The pre-construction process can take three to five years, and all the agencies consider ways to increase the benefits and reduce the consequences of the plan.

For example, the first phase of construction on the Kaohsiung Light Rail Transit involved stations C1 to C14 along the coast, which connected major landmarks in Kaohsiung’s port area, such as the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center, the Maritime Cultural and Popular Music Center, the Kaohsiung Port Terminal, the Kaohsiung Main Public Library and the international cruise ship economic zone.

The second phase, stations C15 to C37, which is still under construction, would see trams driving through downtown Kaohsiung, connecting tourist spots such as the Pier-2 Art Center, Hamasen, Shoushan Zoo, Chaishan Park and the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts.

The trams are to connect National Sun Yat-sen University, National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology, Kaohsiung Industrial High School, St Dominic Catholic High School and Shu-Te Home Economics and Commercial High School, as well as medical centers, including Kaohsiung Municipal United Hospital, Kaohsiung Municipal Min-Sheng Hospital and Kaohsiung Municipal Kai-Syuan Psychiatric Hospital.

They will also run close to the Kaohsiung Costco, while EDA Group is planning to build a mall in the area.

Along with the high-speed rail’s Zuoying Station, several rail links and bus terminals, the municipality will have constructed a complete transportation network in the urban area.

In other countries, urban characteristics are often integrated into light-rail systems, making them a wonderful “moving landmark.” Such user-friendly, non-polluting and innovative trams could help create a modern international urban image and give Kaohsiung a new look.

In March 2001, the Kaohsiung City Government completed a proposal to turn the circular line into a light-rail system, gaining Cabinet approval in January 2004. After adjustments, the city in January 2013 issued contracts for the first stage of the line. It began operations in November.

The government issued contracts for the second stage in August 2016. That stage is to be completed by the end of this year.

Kaohsiung to add sports facilities
COURTS, POOLS : The National Sports Training Center in Zuoying District is to get the swimming pool from the Taipei Universiade after Taoyuan declined to take it
Taipei Times Excerpt

More sports facilities are to be built at the National Sports Training Center in Kaohsiung’s Zuoying District (左營) after the Ministry of National Defense released property there for the purpose, the Sports Administration said on Thursday.

About 16 hectares of land previously allocated for Naval Academy use would be used to build swimming pools and tennis courts at the center, the agency said.

It has been building and renovating sports facilities at the center since 2009, it said, adding that the work is part of a four-phase project.

The first phase, from 2009 to 2015, focused on building indoor and outdoor training facilities, with construction costing NT$4.54 billion (US$147.4 million), it said.

In the second phase, from 2016 to next year, the government has budgeted about NT$1.43 billion to renovate a dormitory and cafeteria, it said.

The dormitory would accommodate 508 athletes and 147 coaches, while the cafeteria, which is a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points-certified facility, would seat 536, it said.

Sports Administration Director-General Kao Chin-hsung (高俊雄) said that the agency on Dec. 28 submitted a plan to the Executive Yuan for phase-three construction — from next year to 2024 — with costs estimated at NT$3.4 billion.

The property released by the ministry would be used in the third phase to build swimming pools and tennis courts, if the Executive Yuan approves the plan, Kao said.

The fourth phase is for indoor track and field, and cycling facilities, he said.

The swimming pool used at the 2017 Summer Universiade in Taipei would be reassembled at the training center and should be ready for use in September, he said.

Terminal project bidding awaiting review of budget
Taipei Times Excerpt

Bidding for the second phase of construction at the Port of Kaohsiung’s Cargo Terminal No. 7 is scheduled to begin in the second half of this year after the Public Construction Commission reviews its budget, Taiwan International Ports Corp (TIPC) said yesterday.

The terminal is part of the firm’s plan to enhance the competitiveness of the nation’s largest international seaport and to sustain its development, it said.

The terminal is to be equipped with five deepwater piers, with a total pier length of 2.42km, which would allow it to berth container ships with capacities for 20,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), the company said.

The first phase of construction, which includes building two of the deepwater piers and a land reclamation project, is scheduled to be completed next month, it said.

The Executive Yuan has approved the second-phase construction plan, the company said, adding that it was working on a more detailed design for the terminal.

TIPC said that it in December last year signed a 50-year lease with Evergreen Marine Corp that would allow the shipping firm to have exclusive use of the terminal.

Evergreen was keen to lease the terminal, as the nation lacks deepwater piers that allow the berthing of 20,000-TEU cargo container ships, which has become a trend in the international shipping industry, TIPC said.

Evergreen plans to turn the terminal into an automated container handling base, which would have the capacity to process 4.1 million TEUs per year, it said.

The government is to invest NT$16.3 billion (US$518.12 million) to build infrastructure around the terminal, while Evergreen is to invest NT$20.6 billion to purchase heavy machinery to handle containers, TIPC said.

Dongsha Island not ready for tourism: official
Excerpt

Taipei, May 22 (CNA) Taiwan's Dongsha Island will not be ready for tourism for another two or three years, a government official said Wednesday, in the wake of reports that the island in the South China Sea will be opened to tourists this year.

Wang Tung-yung (王東永), secretary general of the Construction and Planning Agency under the Ministry of the Interior (MOI), said it will take two to three years before the planning and design of public facilities and infrastructure on the island can be completed.

The biggest challenge will be a sewage project, which has not yet been commissioned, Wang told the press, when asked about the reports concerning tourism on the island that lies about 400 kilometers off the southwest coast of Kaohsiung.
