Foreign direct investment plays an important role in Taiwan's economic development. This paper investigates the criteria that MNEs use to assess the investment determinants in Taiwan. There are 12 criteria are extracted from past literature and classifies into 5 groups, then consults with scholars and senior experts who are excellent in foreign direct investment. This paper adopts a DANP approach developed by Ou Yang et al. (2008) which combines DEMATEL and ANP procedures to deal with the problems of criteria interdependence and feedback. The expected results include: (1) Identify the critical criteria for assessing the attracting determinants on inward FDI in Taiwan; (2) Understand the cause-effect relationship among the sets of groups; (3) Draw the strategy map of groups; (4) Rank the relative importance of each criterion for Taiwan government to evaluate the effectiveness of existing economic conditions in Taiwan and the current governmental policies for attracting inward FDI; (5) Provide referable screening guidelines for foreign MNEs who potentially plan to engage in FDI in Taiwan. The conclusion may also contribute to the Taiwan government to understand what criteria the MNEs used to assess determinants and may well prepare to adjust FDI attracting factor.
