Records indicate that there are currently 290 semiconductor companies
            operating in Taiwan, and they employ nearly 230,000 people. Most of these
            companies are concentrated in the Hsinchu Science Park and Taoyuan. In order
            to spread the risk from natural disasters such as earthquakes, new production
            capacity has been built in science parks in central and southern Taiwan, while
            packaging and testing companies are mainly concentrated in Kaohsiung (see
            Fig. 3).
