Abstract:

While the country receives some of the highest levels of precipitation in the world, its current water infrastructure captures little of it - government officials put the figure at around -- . The Taiwanese government has recognised the importance of boosting water security by increasing available water supplies, and several projects are underway to improve the water availability and protect the country s water resources. ...As a result, annual water extraction from ground sources is miniscule, and the majority of water comes from rivers and rainwater captured in reservoirs. However, during the drought, water extraction from ground supplies saw an incremental increase, but over the medium term over-extraction and the increase in river and reservoir extraction will contribute to the decline in ground water production over the medium term.

...China and Taiwan signed a deal on July -- to pump water from the province of Fujian in mainland China to the ---,--- residents of the Kinmen archipelago by ----. The pipeline will be able to deliver up to --,--- tonnes of water daily to the archipelago by ----, but water supplies will start arriving by the end of ----, according to current project deadlines. ...We have therefore downwardly revised our ---- production and consumption forecasts for ----. The impact of water shortages and rationing on the electronics sector in particular, a high water consuming sector, have resulted in various electronics manufacturers, such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, opting to pay for water imports rather than slowdown production. There are also plans to raise water prices for specific industrial users amidst complaints that some companies are benefitting from exceptionally low price schemes. ...The impact of water shortages and rationing on the electronics sector in particular, a high water consuming sector, have resulted in various electronics manufacturers, such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, opting to pay for water imports rather than slowdown production.

...BMI View: Given that the government will be a key driver of infrastructure project implementation as well as financing over the coming years, the uncertain political outlook for Taiwan in light of the presidential elections coming up in ---- is a key risk to our outlook for the current infrastructure improvements in the pipeline for the water sector. Moreover, neither the ruling Kuomintang party nor the opposition Democratic Progressive Party has a concrete China policy which poses particularly significant risks with regards to potential China water imports. ...
