Since the 12th Five-Year Plan of mainland China (referring to the 12th five-year plan for economic development) was first disclosed by the 5th Plenum of the 17th CPC Central Committee, the curtain for China’s economic strategies and leadership transfers has been raised, attracting attention from over the globe, bringing forth a structural change to China as well as to the world and offering a huge opportunity of business for the firms globally from 2011 till 2015.
The 12th Five-Year Plan has further appointed 7 major strategic, burgeoning industries to be fully backed by national policies, so as to elevate them to large-scale world-class industries with competitive edges. Among the 7 strategic, burgeoning industries, new energy industry include Taiwan’s solar energy industry, which is regarded as having relative competitive edges. Although this strategic industry cooperated by both sides of the Strait seems ridden with opportunities of business, it will affect, or even threaten, the future development of Taiwan in the long run.
Differing characteristics exist in the solar photovoltaic industry of Taiwan and mainland China. Generally speaking, Taiwan emphasizes industry segmentation, whilst China puts a high premium on vertical integration; thus the cooperation will provide supplementary merits in the industry value chain and increase the industry’s competitiveness in the global market. Yet with the less apparent gap between the solar photovoltaic industries of two sides of the Strait in the aspects of time and technology and the leadership owned by China, it is indeed a huge challenge to proceed with solar photovoltaic cooperation. As China has undergone the process of the 12th Five-Year Plan with the upper hand of the expansion of domestic needs and all sorts of subsidies, as well as a restructuring of the industry structure due to financial crises, a good number of businesses have upgraded and China has been transformed from a manufacturing nation to a nation of application. Hence Taiwanese merchants may take advantage of this opportunity and revise the current strategy of using China as a factory. Now Taiwanese merchants should view mainland China as a market and initiate cooperation with China in brand creation and channel expansion, so as to connect with the world with better interactions with China in the respects of capital, technology, talents and markets.
In summation, the current essay scrutinizes the business advantages that China’s 12th Five-Year Plan has brought for Taiwan’s green energy industry and induces suggestions for related policies, thus offering personal conclusions for the research of the future.
