RSM Taiwan chairman Tsai Hsin-fu (蔡信夫) said that RSM International’s extensive global network allows clients throughout the world to understand Taiwan and invest in the nation, which creates business opportunities and carries the nation’s economy forward.
It also creates opportunities for Taiwanese businesses to expand abroad, he said.

Tsai said that accountants are the physicians of the business world and can make a significant contribution to economic prosperity.
