The Institute of Economics was officially established on February 1, 1970. In the early years, the Institute focused its research on local issues. Bringing both domestic and international economists together, we undertook a series of research projects surrounding Taiwan's economic development. In addition to empirical studies, recently we have also placed emphasis on theoretical research. Moreover, in order to obtain a global perspective and promote interactions with international scholars, we have been organizing international conferences and sponsoring joint research and exchange programs. The Institute values the continuing education of its faculty. Research leaves abroad and international guest speakers provide our researchers with plenty of opportunities to collaborate with international scholars. We also assist local universities in graduate teaching and thesis supervising. Devoted to improving the academic performance of domestic economic community, the Institute, in addition to publishing journals and monographs and organizing conferences, also invites internationally renowned economists to sequences of seminars. "Academic Excellence" has always been our goal, and we are striving towards "Number One in Asia, and First Class in the World."
