Road to industrial upgrading: policy design and implementation for encouraging industrial innovation in Taiwan
AbstractAmong Asia's four little dragons for their considerable economic growth, Taiwan represents an interesting example of a country whose policy design stands between laissez faire and central planning. As Taiwan had reached the 'investment-driven' stage by the beginning of the 1990s, the government was aware of the need for and started to transform the economy into the 'innovation-driven' stage with a set of industrial upgrading measures. This paper aims to review systematically Taiwan's approach to encouraging industrial innovation by examining the policies designed for each stage of the innovation process. Although the performance of industrial innovation in Taiwan has been credited by the international competitiveness ratings, the best practices of innovation policy continue to evolve and their full worth remains to be judged.
