About TaiwanICDF

The TaiwanICDF commits itself to advancing socio-economic development, enriching human resources, and fostering economic ties across diverse developing partner nations. Our scope extends to providing humanitarian aid during natural disasters and international refugee crises.

To fulfill our mission, our assistance revolves around four core operations: lending and investment, technical cooperation, humanitarian aid, and international education and training. Direct or indirect investments and financing of lending operations are facilitated through our Fund. Revenues generated support bilateral or multilateral technical cooperation, humanitarian aid, and education/training endeavors.

Each new TaiwanICDF project follows a stringent project cycle and operates under mutual covenants in collaboration with pertinent stakeholders. Tailored to address the strategic developmental goals of partner countries, our projects also account for regional trends, employing capital and technical cooperation for optimal outcomes.


Our approach is customized to the unique needs of each partner country, encompassing various contemporary development facets like agriculture, public health, education, ICT, environment, and SMEs.

Simultaneously, we focus on enhancing human resources and institutional capacity within the TaiwanICDF itself. Strengthening our organization aids in providing informed counsel to governmental decision-making bodies. This internal improvement also extends project coverage and facilitates the transfer of technological expertise to our partners. Our goal is to maximize resource efficiency, replicate successful experiences across partner nations, and adapt them suitably.

Headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, as of December 31, 2020, the TaiwanICDF comprises 110 domestic employees and 151 staff stationed at overseas missions.
