Taiwan will convert its Yun Feng missile into a satellite launch vehicle. It will be able to put a mass of up to 200 kilos in a 500 km orbit.

From Space News:
Quote
As the first and only commercial rocket company in Taiwan, TiSPACE is developing a three-stage rocket called Hapith-5 designed to carry up to 300 kilograms of payload to sun-synchronous orbits.

The Hapith-5 is Taiwan's second SLV design, considering that Taiwan in the early 2000s worked on its first SLV design, the Taiwan Small Launch Vehicle (TSLV), which was designed by the Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology (CSIST). The TSLV project was shelved due to political pressure from the US, which concerned about China’s reactions vis-a-vis the development of dual-use technology. By contrast, the Hapith-V uses entirely new technology not optimized for application to ballistic missiles, namely hybrid rocket motors.

Which is better than the propulsion technology with the Scud missile and it's many derivatives.

tiSpace and their Hapith rockets (also known as "Kestrel" and marketed by the Australian subsidiary or joint venture ATSpace) are already discussed here:
