Shares in Taiwan closed higher Wednesday. The strength of the bellwether electronics sector helped the broader market fend off sporadic pressure during the session. The financial sector moved higher, also lending support to the index. But the textile sector underperformed the broader market amid fears that anti-China protests in Vietnam will affect Taiwanese textile makers' operations.

Taiwan shares closed up 57.22 points, or 0.64%, at 8,875.16.
