Mr. Sridaharan Madhusudhanan, the Director General of India-Taipei Association (the Indian representative office in Taiwan) said the relations between Taiwan and India have been growing. Currently there are around 3,000 Indian nationals living in Taiwan and among them, 1,000 are students pursuing higher education. The number of students can be increased as compared to more than 160 thousand Indian students in the US, but Indian students are concerned about the instability of scholarships provided to them. Another factor is that it is hard for them to find employment after graduation.But some universities provide them with jobs in Taiwanese companies in India. Around 90 Taiwanese companies have invested in Taiwan and these students can serve as a connecting link between Taiwan and India.

  

 

The Indian representative said the bilateral cooperation is not confined to education and trade, but has extended to railway heritage and both sides signed a letter of intent in late December 2016. This will pave way for both sides to protect and manage the mountain railway heritage. Taiwan and India each constructed mountain railways including the Alishan Forest Railway in Taiwan and the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, the Kalka Shimla Railway and the Nilgiri Mountain Railway in India between the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 2005,UNESCO added the Nilgiri Mountain Railway as an extension to the World Heritage Site of Darjeeling Himalayan Railway and in 2008 The Kalka Shimla Railway became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
