Apple has confirmed to Reuters that it will open its first retail store in Taiwan, as job listings are spotted for all the usual retail positions. The store is expected to open in the capital, Taipei, but the precise location or date are not yet known.

Start dates for some of the positions are shown as September, which normally come some months ahead of the store opening.

Taiwan falls within Apple’s Greater China region, along with mainland China itself, Hong Kong and Macau. Apple opened a number of stores in China in quick succession earlier this year as it moved towards its goal of 40 stores in the region.

Taiwan is a modern industrial nation, home to a number of Apple suppliers, including its main chipmaker TSMC, reported to be Apple’s sole choice for its A-series chips for both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. Taipei has a population of 2.7M people.
