Is this a fake, or a simple "made-in", or an evidence that MSX existed in Taiwan?
Or maybe it's a production for the Arabic market.

It's not impossible, as there are SMS games produced in Taiwan, they include pirate adaptations of Konami MSX games. See for more infos.

It's not fake. I have Knight Lore and Frogger (sorry for the bad quality of the pictures).

Those cartridges were sold on the Arabic market as Enribar and GDX said it.
Konami knew about that as it was a deal made and were manufactured in Taiwan.

I never found discussion of it here, but DahJee in Taiwan (and maybe other manufacturers too?) ported some MSX titles to the SG-1000 Mark II (and its clones) with the aid of adapters that added more RAM:
