中國與東協利用自身的資源與市場，逐漸在區域整合的浪潮下成為領導者，而相較於台灣卻因政治因素與落後的經濟環境，逐漸被排除在外。在這個世界境況急速轉變的時代，台灣以出口為導向的紡織、機械設備與電子零組件業，究竟應如何作出相應的對策來維持競爭力?本研究將針對「中國-東協自由貿易區」成立前後之貿易與投資數據以及影響，分析以上三個產業的現況，進出口與投資佈局。 Taiwan''s economy used to be famous as one of the "Four Asian Tigers ", however, the global economic and trade model began to change with the passage of time, and the speed of economic globalization is accelerating, also the regional economic integration has gradually become the mainstream of the world economic and trade cooperation model.
