by Cheng, Nieh-fu

Abstract (Summary)
Although Taiwan locates at the key position of the southeastern Asia and is also a transportation hub in the west Pacific basin, the intensified competitive surroundings, most of major ports in the world have still tried to improve their operational efficiency and create more service items for inducing more liners¡¦ calls. Mainland China¡¦s attraction as an investment locale for large-scale enterprises will doubtlessly have a great impact on Taiwan¡¦s port economic development. Such a phenomenon will speed up Mainland China¡¦s economic development but will result in a feeble constitution in Taiwan¡¦s port development. To cope with this situation, the ROC government should take additional efforts to improve Taiwan¡¦s port management environment, upgrade Taiwan¡¦s industrial production, and realize it as an Asia-Pacific Transshipment Center at an earlier date so as to provide a better investment environment in Taiwan. In addition, port ability has greatly relationship with international logistics ability, the port ability is influenced by the market situation of international ocean transportation, at the same time, the development of port management and logistics activities will be dependent on the performance of international economics. The purpose of this paper is aimed to figure out the existing issues of Taiwanese port management systems, and to discover the alternatives based on comparative analysis approaches among Taiwan straits.
