Taiwan sees economic uptick as business climate monitor shifts

Taiwan’s business climate monitor hit ‘yellow-red’, indicating a slight economic boom for the first time in two years, reported the National Development Council. This shift from ‘green’ reflects strong industrial production, robust commercial activities, and increased investments in stocks and machinery. The council’s five-colour system ranges from blue (recession) to red (boom). The composite index rose four points to 35, suggesting six months of continuous growth. The leading indicators index, forecasting future economic trends, increased by 0.5% to 102.09, while the coincident indicators index, tracking current economic activity, grew by 0.93% to 102.82. Despite these gains, concerns remain about potential interest rate cuts and geopolitical tensions. The council anticipates steady growth in exports and strong domestic investment and consumption.
