Authors: Soren Eriksson

Addresses: Jonkoping International Business School, Jonkoping, Sweden

Abstract: The paper investigates in what way and to what extent Taiwan has been able to develop a commercial aerospace industry and the formation of an internationally competitive supplier system, i.e. high-tech cluster. The development of such an industry has been much more difficult than expected. Since the late 1990s there have been signs that a supplier system is under development, but there are great challenges ahead, amid fierce international competition.

Keywords: aerospace industry; high tech clusters; innovation; Taiwan; technology flows; technology transfer; cluster creation; supplier systems.
