dc.description.abstract This report analyzes Taiwan as a potential trading partner with Canada for wood products. It takes a look at Taiwan’s economic conditions to see if Canada can establish a partnership with Taiwan. It contains information on Taiwan’s current wood market and determines if there are any Canadian wood organizations in Taiwan. An outline is given to guide Canadian organizations on starting a partnership with these Taiwanese companies. The outcome of this report has found that there is a market for lumber products in wood frame construction. Factors for this demand in wood frame construction are green architecture, earthquake resistant buildings, demand for natural aesthetics, and tourism development. There is a partnership between Taiwan and some Canadian organizations but there needs to be more initiatives between the two countries. en
