Description

Even as relations between Taiwan and the People's Republic of China continue to be strained, investment by Taiwanese businesses in China is growing every year. Between 1978 and 1994, Taiwan businesses invested $10 billion in China, 10% of the total foreign investment during that period. This study describes the magnitude and importance of this investment. Hsing demonstrates the role of a shared cultural heritage and language and the role of Chinese local government in building networks of firms in the two countries.show more

Review quote

The whole work is based on clear theoretical grounds and on a precisely fixed methodology.This book is worth reading for its non-conventional approach, combining the tools ofeconomic analysis, anthropolgy, sociology, regional development and geography, and for its focus on a somewhat inheeded channel of Chinese capitalism in the making. - Wladimir Andreff - Economic Systems Vol 23 No.1 March 1999 ...the wealth of primary sources collected by the author makes this study an excellent reference for anyone who wishes to better understand the phenomenon of direct investments in China. - Philippe Chevalerias. China Perspectives. Jan/Feb 1999 This book is indeed an ambitious project. It has achieved a great deal by adding rich empirical data to our understanding of the much discussed Taiwan capital phenomenon in China. It is a welcome addition to the research literature on contemporary Taiwan and China. * Hsin-Huang Michael Hsiao, The China Quarterly, 159, 1999 *show more
