I was surfing banking sites in Taiwan looking for a bank with a reasonable website that I could use, given my already limited Chinese proficiency.
I didn’t find a site yet that I can use, apart from Citibank. But I did find some statistical information courtesy of the Bank of Taiwan. Unfortunately, the website is only really functional in IE. You can find the latest stats on Bank of Taiwan’s website yourself, but you’ll need to download the files, and open them in Excel or a similar Office type program.
So I took the liberty of downloading them, and uploading them to Google Docs. I’ve also shared the documents so that you don’t need to download the stats.
- Document 1 GDP, Unemployment, Leading Indicators, etc.
- Document 2 CPI, PPI, Trade, etc.
- Document 3 Monetary, Banks, Deposits, etc.
- Document 4 Bank Rates, Current Account, Exchange Rate, etc.
I hope the bank don’t mind, but I think locking up the information inside an Excel document instead of a web page isn’t smart.
