The Center for Economic Forecasting
CIER established the Center for Economic Forecasting in September 1992, with the aim of developing and utilizing a variety of quantitative models and statistical indicators for economic forecasting and analysis of the impact that domestic and international economic and political developments and trends can be expected to have on Taiwan, as well as for use in the appraisal of policy implementation results and in risk monitoring.
In line with its goal of establishing CIER as a leading, authoritative international economic forecasting body, the Center for Economic Forecasting carries out ongoing economic forecasting based on domestic and regional economic trends, and proactively publicizes the results. The Center’s main research topics include forward-looking analysis of short-, medium- and long-term domestic and international economic trends, and of their potential impact on Taiwan.
The Center also undertakes quantitative appraisal of the benefits resulting from specific economic, industrial, technology and trade policies to provide a reference for policy adjustment. The quantitative techniques developed by the Center can also be used to help relevant agencies to perform policy evaluation, thereby providing a basis for ongoing improvement.
Furthermore, in light of the external risks resulting from the trends towards economic globalization and regional economic integration, the Center makes use of a range of quantitative and statistical techniques to help the government monitor potential external risks to Taiwan’s trade and industry, so that suitable response strategies can be implemented as early as possible.
