This chapter describes the role of the public research institutions in the development of the information technology (IT) industry in Taiwan. Taiwan is the only society in the region that has, in many critical aspects, closed the gap in innovational activities with the leading Western industrial nations and with Japan. Taiwan has also developed a vibrant industrial system of indigenous new small- and medium-sized enterprises, a system that is not dominated by a few huge conglomerates or subsidiaries of foreign multinational companies (MNCs). Taiwanese companies have become a prominent force in the IT industry's global production network. Taiwan has also followed a distinct policy with regard to MNCs and the shaping of the relationships between its local IT industry and global markets.

Keywords:   Taiwan, information technology, innovation, production, multinational companies
