Taiwan's government wants to establish an AMOLED R&D alliance, to help local companies compete with AMOLED leader Samsung. Currently it is reported that AU Optronics (AUO) has volunteered for the plan and are in talks with smartphone and PC makers HTC, Acer and Asustek to form the alliance. It's not clear whether other Taiwanese OLED makers (such as Chimei Innolux) will join too.

The Taiwanese goverment will offer financial incentives as they hope this alliance will improve AMOLED yield rate and so help local companies secure customers for the AMOLED panels. AUO is facing technical issues which forced them to delay OLED production. CMI is facing both technical and financial problems and their OLED plans aren't clear.
