dc.description.abstract This study examines what role three institutions in Taiwan - state bureaucracy, local business groups and multinational corporations, played in the development of the flat panel display (TFT-LCD) technology. The thesis adopts the 'Triple-alliance' conceptual framework to understand how these three institutions cooperated to develop TFT-LCD; it argues that it is vital to understand the interactions among these three institutions in order to map the development of a high technology industry in a late industrializing country. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches are adopted in order to validate the utility of the 'Triple-alliance' conceptual framework. The qualitative part of the study employed five semi-structured interviews to gain first hand understanding of the development of the TFT-LCD industry. The interviews were supplemented with secondary sources from annual reports, newspapers, and trade journals. In the quantitative part of the study, data was collected from 100 information technology related firms listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange. Hierarchal multiple regression analysis investigated the relationships between institutional factors and firm performance. The findings reveal that there exists a strong relationship between institutional alliances and firm performance. The positive relationship highlights the significance of the 'Triple-alliance' framework in helping explain the institutional mechanism often adopted by late developing nations and firms to help develop indigenous technologies. en_US
