Taiwan is one of the original four “East Asian Tiger” economies whose dramatic economic successes of recent decades influenced the way economists think about development. The experience of Taiwan was a major motivation behind the changes in economic policy instituted in the People’s Republic of China beginning in 1978. Taiwan’s claim to its status as a “development miracle” is strong. The island racked up a measured annual economic growth rate averaging about 7% over the four decades from 1960 to 2000. Taiwan’s economy grew nearly 10% annually in 1965–1980, faster than any other nation’s economic growth. Despite its now high-income status, with a per capita income of $13,925 in 2000, Taiwan continued to grow, at a rapid rate of 5.7% on average over the 1996–2000 period. Sustaining such high rates over such a long period of time was extraordinary until the subsequent growth of China itself. At least as important, Taiwan has achieved universal elementary and middle school education, a healthy population with a life expectancy of 75 years, and an infant mortality rate of only 5 per 1,000 live births. Absolute poverty has essentially been eliminated, unemployment is extremely low, and relative inequality is modest even by developed-country standards.




A case study “A Pioneer in Development Success through Trade: Taiwan” is given in the text book of Economic Development by M.P.Todaro at the end of Chapter 12 “International Trade Theory and Development Strategy”.


Being an economist, analyze the case of Taiwan’s development success and discuss the development factors behind the development success of Taiwan.
