First of all, will choose the items on top ranking & worst ranking of national appraisals for Taiwan and Ireland on these two national institutional report as mentioned above, then will try to analyze Taiwan and Ireland’s relative government policy’s merits toward the chosen items.. At last, will try to give the proposal on learning experience from Ireland’s policy experience to enhance our national competitiveness to provide the personal part of the proposal ,with a view to the future development of Taiwan government policy.
The study subjects are as follows:

The results showed that Taiwan in the encouragement of foreign investment policy does not seem so friendly and positive as Ireland. Second, our education spending in the GDP ratio is not less than Europe, the United States and Japan, however the quality of education wasn’t upgraded. Taiwan''s education system, personnel and the level of language skills can not meet the needs in the job market. However these are performed the best in Ireland according to the national appraisal. Irish government concerns very much in the interactive and linkage among industries and academic institutions. Third, the two countries attach importance to technology and R&D industries and the effect is significant. But both need to strengthen its infrastructure especially Ireland. Fourth, Taiwan perform well in economic and finance aspects, for instance the inflation annual rate and consumption rate which are lower than the major economic units in the world however the financial management and supervision system are comparatively weak due to the law making is not comprehensive and transparency is low. Ireland performs better on these two aspects, one of important reason is because its quality control policy called “ Regulating Letter-White Paper” which can be as Taiwan’s reference.
