Taiwan is the global leader when it comes to cutting-edge semiconductor design and manufacturing. Taiwan’s excellence is not limited to semiconductors but it extends to several industries such as electronics, petrochemical, construction, machinery, transportation, shipping, telecommunication, etc. Taiwan’s service sector is also one of the prominent sectors that contribute significant amount of its GDP. Taiwan's success comes from several factors, such as innovation, advanced technology, and effective government policies. A substantial credit goes to Taiwan’s skilled workforce in shaping the success of any industry. Likewise, the success can also be attributed to semi-skilled laborers/workers who play a key role in providing invaluable support for the success of any organization. However, for Taiwan, labor shortage is not a new challenge, but it is experiencing labor shortage for at least past twenty years. To meet the shortage, many workers from South-East Asia, particularly from Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam have been working in various sectors in Taiwan. Despite their support, today, Taiwan is experiencing heavy worker shortage, especially in construction, manufacturing, healthcare, and several other services sectors. Given the contemporary decline in Taiwan’s population and the intensified labor shortage issue, there is speculation that about 400,000 foreign workers will be needed by 2035. This strategic move is seen as an effort to enhance competitiveness with China, Korea, and other nations. To achieve these abovementioned goals, Taiwan has decided to open gates for Indian workers in late 2023. It is speculated that Taiwan prefers to have Northeastern India workers due to their cultural and dietary resemblance. In the light of above discussion, the primary objective of this project is to investigate Northeastern Indian Laborers' decision-making factors/process while exploring employment prospects in Taiwan. The secondary objective is to identify workers' preferred sectors of work. For addressing Taiwan's current labor shortage, it is crucial to have a smooth, seamless, and reliable supply of workers. We hope that the results of the project will improve employers' understanding of the decision-making factors influencing Northeastern Indian workers. A smooth seamless and reliable supply of workers is essential for addressing challenges of Taiwan’s contemporary labor shortage problem. We hope that the findings of this project will improve employers’ understanding on Northeastern Indian workers’ decision making factors. Finally, it will also help workers with a comprehensive set of factors to consider when heading abroad for the employment.
