    Taiwan is located at the heart of the Asia-Pacific region, which puts it in an advantageous position to make use of global production resources and marketplace. Taiwan's north is the world's second largest economy-Japan, its south are the 10 countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and India. Taiwan's east is the world's largest economy-the US, and its west is mainland China-the world's fourth largest economy and the center of the world's economic growth. The average flying time from Taipei to the seven major cities (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Manila, Seoul, Tokyo, Singapore and Sydney) in Western Pacific is merely 2 hours and 55 minutes. And the average sailing time from Kaohsiung harbor to the 5 major Asia-Pacific harbors is merely 53 hours. Taiwan is the hub of Asian transportation and the logistic center in the East-Asian region. InterNations, the largest expat website in the world, ranked Taiwan as the best country to live in for expats in 2016. Out of 191 countries and more than 14,000 expats surveyed, Taiwan was chosen based on quality of life, ease of settling in, personal finance, and work/life balance.
