Under the visa waiver program, Taiwanese travelers can enter 35 European countries without a visa for up to 90 days within a six-month period.
"Because of the visa-free treatment, more Taiwanese are willing to go to Europe, and thus are gaining a better understanding of the region," said Terry Lee, deputy director-general of the Economics Ministry's Department of Investment Services.
Lee noted that some of the reasons for why few Taiwan companies have invested in the world's biggest economy include culture, language and lifestyle differences, as well as physical distance. However, he said that as Taiwanese learn more about Europe, they will be more willing to do business and invest there.
