Introduction of The Economic Law Research Center

In recent years, the Taiwanese government has been working actively to promote economic liberalization and regional economic integration, and to bring Taiwan's economic legal and regulatory framework in line with international norms. The analysis of potential areas for legal and regulatory revision and adjustment is becoming ever more important. Research on related policy is vital to build the economic legal and regulatory environment needed to strengthen Taiwan's national competitiveness.

As Taiwan's leading economic policy think-tank, CIER has built up significant research capabilities in the area of economic law. CIER's research teams have participated frequently in projects relating to economic legal and regulatory reform and related policy analysis, and have achieved impressive results.

In order to enable CIER's researchers to continue leveraging their specialist expertise, and to further strengthen CIER's capabilities in the area of economic law research, in 2015 CIER established the Economic Law Research Center to coordinate CIER's expertise in related research fields, and maximize the benefits of human resources integration.
