The Taiwanese economy grew an impressive 10.8% in 2010 thanks to factors like the expansion of electronics-related industries. Taiwan is home to several leading global manufacturers of computers, LCD monitors and other such products and in recent years has also enjoyed a growing presence as a base for exports to and investments in China catering to industries such as electronic materials and food retail.
