In 2013, the U.S. and Taiwan exchanged $65 billion in goods. Taiwan is America's 12th largest trading partner, just behind India and ahead of Holland and Italy. Acer, Asus, BenQ, HTE, Microtek, and Trend Micro are among the Taiwan tech brands recognized by American shoppers. Others know Evergreen shipping, Eva Air, Franz porceilains, Giant bikes, and other firms. Many Taiwan companies (Foxconn, for example), though, also assemble U.S.-branded products such as the iPhone in China. The economic ties between the U.S. and Taiwan are well-established and multistranded.
