Hsinchu Science Park The first establishment of its kind in Taiwan, the Hsinchu Science Park was set up on December 15, 1980. The Hsinchu Science Park Bureau(HSPB) is charged with the duty of developing, operating and managing the park. By ushering in technologies and talent from abroad, bringing about the transformation of domestic conventional industry, and fostering the upgrade of industrial technology across the board, the park is intended to help high-tech industry take off in Taiwan.

Placed under the Ministry of Science and Technology, Executive Yuan, the SPB is a government agency designed mainly to serve, providing HSP companies with convenient services and all the amenities they need. In addition to comprehensive one-stop and online services, the SPB makes available a full range of facilities at the park that will fulfill every aspect of their daily needs: food, clothing, housing, transportation, education, and recreation. In their turn, tenant companies are thus able to concentrate in their production and R&D, creating even greater economic benefits for Taiwan and its people.
