Planning a Chemical Industry - Taiwan, ROC: A Case Study

The 'Economic Miracle' of Taiwan, based on her successful transformation from an agrarian to an industrial economy, would not have been possible without the establishment of a world-class chemical industry over the past 25 years. This paper attempts to analyse how such a development has been accomplished in a land with a population of 20 million but practically no natural resources and to note the problems caused by this rapid and successful transformation, which resulted in a slow-down in the 1980s, and the strategies for future growth and development (N.B. values are given in US $).
