Taiwan Places 20th in IMD Talent Ranking 2019|2019世界人才報告 台灣列全球第20名


According to the newly released IMD World Talent Ranking 2019, Taiwan's ranks 20th in world, the highest since 2013. The ranking also places Taiwan ahead of Japan, South Korea and Mainland China, behind Singapore and Hong Kong.


The Switzerland-based business school International Institute for Management (IMD) recently released its ranking for world talent. Among the 63 participating countries, Taiwan ranks 20th, which was an improvement of 7 places compared to 2018. Among all Asian countries, Taiwan ranks the third, behind Singapore at no. 10 and Hong Kong at 15th place, and is ahead of Japan, South Korea and Mainland China.

Our current industry structure cannot absorb that many talents every years. However, our higher education system is producing more and more talents. Although this has improved our placement in global rankings, for Taiwan, this is the source of our problem.

The ranking measures three main parameters, and Taiwan has made progress in all three. In talent readiness, Taiwan moved 15 places up from last year to rank 12th. In talent investment and development, Taiwan moved one place up to rank 24th. In talent attraction and retention, Taiwan moved up three places to rank 29th. The IMD report has also pointed out that Taiwan suffers from a number of problems, including low attraction to advanced foreign talents and a relatively high cost of living. Taiwan ranks 48 in both categories.

We still have a lot of limitations when it comes to attracting foreign talents to Taiwan. (To qualify,) the foreign university graduates must have at least two years of working work experience, and the monthly wage must reach NT$47,971, which is almost NT$48,000. They also need to bring their families along, and have their children enroll in local schools. And their children must leave Taiwan as they turn 18 years of age.

There is still much room for improvement when it comes to attracting and retaining foreign talents. The National Development Council will hold more discussions on relaxing laws on immigration and foreign talents, as well as to promote the New Economy Immigration Bill in an effort to attract and retain more foreign talents.



瑞士洛桑管理學院公布2019年世界人才報告,在63個受評比國家中,台灣排名第20名,比2018年大幅進步七名,在亞洲地區國家中,我國是排名第3,僅次於第10名的新加坡及第15名的香港,領先南韓、日本及中國。

台大國發所副教授 辛炳隆表示:「我們的產業結構,就是沒辦法去吸納這麼多的大學畢業生,而我們的高等教育,卻普及又一直再增加,(人才準備度)這個項目,雖然在國際評比上,讓我們的名次往上拉了,可是在台灣來講,它確實是一個問題的根源。」

這份人才競爭力評比共分為3項指標,台灣在這三大類指標都較去年進步,其中,人才準備度大幅提升至第12名,比去年進步15名,投資與發展人才則進步一名是第24名,吸引與留住人才進步3名為第29名,不過IMD也點出,台灣弱勢項目為對外籍高階技術人才缺乏吸引力、還有生活成本相對高,這2項排名為全球第48名。

工總秘書長 蔡練生表示:「我們針對這些外國人在台灣工作,我們還是有很多的限制,現在外國大學畢業生,他都需要有兩年以上的工作經驗,而且他的月薪,必須達到4萬7千971塊,幾乎要達到4萬8千塊,他們又要攜帶家眷,隨他工作來這邊讀書,他的小孩到18歲了,小孩就必須要離開台灣。」

針對吸引及留住人才,仍屬有改進空間項目,國發會,未來將持續檢討鬆綁專業人才引進與移民相關法規,積極推動新經濟移民法草案的立法,希望能吸引與留住更多人才,充沛我國人力資源。
