The New Southbound Policy was introduced by President Tsai Ing-wen in 2016. There were four events in the international environment that led to this new orientation. They were China’s introduction of a new Labor law in 2008, India’s ICT-based Economy and Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’ policy incentives. The fourth event is the tariff war initiated by US President Donald Trump against China. As a result, the New Southbound Policy can be regarded as a coping strategy of Taiwan enterprises to changing international milieu.
