Abstract

基于从全球生产网络(GPNs)层面分析区域发展战略性耦合(strategic coupling)的视角,本文探讨自21世纪初以来,台资跨境生产网络在中国大陆的空间重组,特别是个人电脑(计算机)企业从珠三角向长三角地区再布局的动力机制与格局。通过对相关企业的深度访谈与个案研究,指出台资个人电脑企业在珠三角地区与长三角地区的空间再布局是在各区域地方制度下,GPNs架构中全球领先企业(global lead firms)与分布在2个三角洲区域处于GPNs较低层级供应企业(supplier firms)之间进行不同的战略性耦合之结果。研究阐明在经济全球化背景下'新区域主义'理论对区域发展仅分析区域内部因素之局限性,因应跨地域(trans-local)动力的出现,全球生产网络视角下区域内部与外部因素的战略耦合,已成为理解全球经济化下区域发展的重要理论框架。

From the perspective of strategic coupling of regional development in global production networks (GPN), this paper attempts to explore the dynamics and patterns of the redistribution of Taiwanese personal computer (PC) investment from the Pearl River Delta (PRD) to the Yangtze River Delta (YRD) in China since the early 2000s. Through in-depth firm-level interviews during the period of 2005 and 2007, as well as case studies, the study argues that the redistribution of Taiwanese investment in China is resulted from divergent strategic coupling between respective Taiwanese firms in the PRD and YRD and corresponding global lead firm counterparts in the GPNs fostered by different local institutional initiatives. The study further elucidates that regional development in the global economy has turned increasingly to trans-local dynamics, which has fundamental implications for regional studies and policy implications for local development.
