Taiwan auto parts firm leads way in Okinawa business push

Nippon Hishiyama is the first foreign manufacturer to set up a business in an industrial development zone in Uruma and is attracting the attention of other Taiwanese firms. Established in March last year, Nippon Hishiyama is a joint-venture between Taiwanese firms Fu Chon Trade Co., also headed by Lin, and auto component-maker BGF, run by his brother.

The move comes as the Okinawa Prefectural Government has been holding business meetings in Taiwan in recent years to explore the needs of Taiwanese firms looking to start operations in the prefecture.
