ABSTRACT
The functional role of ports in value-driven chains has been redefined due to the emergence of global logistics integration. This redefinition forces today's ports to adjust themselves to be more competitive to survive. While ports are vigorously setting up Free Trade Zones, however, little is known about what industries are most beneficial to a certain port. This study attempts to define core industries in Free Trade Zones and measure them through value-added analysis. The empirical study shows that "electrical machinery and equipment components", "toy, game, and sport requisites", "clocks and watches", and "inorganic chemicals" should be selected as the core industries in Taiwan's FTZs.
