Abstract

Economic resilience has been a popular issue in recent years. Along with the consideration of severe shocks caused by the financial crisis of 2007–2008 and globalization of industry and the upgradation of knowledge and technology, economic resilience has brought in much attention. About 50 years of development of planned industrial parks in Taiwan has resulted in considerable economic scale; however, due to changes in interior demands and the exterior environment with time, rearrangement and industrial transformation have made the development of industrial parks difficult. Accordingly, the resilience of planned industrial parks in Taiwan, when encountering a variety of shocks, need to be reviewed and examined. This study selects 12 planned industrial parks from Tainan and Kaohsiung, in southern Taiwan, as subjects and had a complete understanding of economic resilience and factors that influence economic resilience from literature reviews. Four quadrant model constituted by the indicators of economic resistance and recovery as well as discriminant analysis are implemented to analyze the resilience of industrial parks with different backgrounds and various shocks, as well as the elements influencing the resilience. Analytical results indicate that planned industrial parks with industrial structures based on specialized variety or with a steady input of knowledge and innovation to research and development benefited the industrial parks in better resilience, while complete infrastructure planning and governance are fundamental conditions for resilience.
