In the beginning, there were only more than 50 small factories for processing, repair, and maintenance. With the booming economy of Taiwan, the hard work of member manufacturers, the successive operations of successive directors, supervisors, and directors, the assistance of research units, and the correct guidance policy of the government, With today’s scale, there are more than 3,500 member manufacturers. The output value and export value of this industry and upstream and downstream each account for half of Taiwan’s total output value and total export value. It is Taiwan’s most important, highest technology, most professional, and most forward-looking. Sex industry and industry associations.
With the development of the industry and the importance of the industry, the original name “Electrical Equipment” used by the Association could not easily express the high-tech industry, so it was renamed “Electrical and Electronics Association” on October 24, 1994 with the approval of the government agency.
