HSP - Taiwan's first science park - was established on December 15, 1980. Committed to creating a development base for Taiwan's top high-technology industries, the park has been home to a total of 370 high-tech companies by 2003, mostly focusing on semi-conductors, computers, telecommunication, and opto-electronics. As the locomotive engine of the island's high-tech industries, HSP has helped promote the domestic economy over twenty years and was the pushing force behind Taiwan's world-famous economic miracle. HSP prides itself on its excellent development, establishment, and overall management in the park. Not only has it become a successful model science park globally through many years of efforts, but a number of manufacturers in the park have also won acclaims within the country and abroad alike for their enterprise image and reputation. National and international personages and media have been attracted to visit the park, which is now a model example to academics in economics and urban and rural development alike.
