This paper discusses how Taiwanese overseas investment creates an ethnic Chinese skilled labor market in Asia. Low costs, no language barrier, and the cultural ““lived Taiwan experience”” are the benefits. Through three different channels––internal corporate transfer, social networks, and placement agencies––skilled labor from the People's Republic is mobilized to work overseas.
