|dc.description.abstract||In the years when the green energy industry is becoming increasingly important, the solar energy industry is changing rapidly. Since the rise of Chinese manufacturers, with the advantages of low labor costs, material costs and government subsidies, large supplies have disrupted the supply and demand of global solar energy products. The U.S. government therefore filed a double-anti lawsuit against Chinese manufacturers, from which Taiwan obtained trade diversion effects and the order transfer effects. However, the United States immediately launched a new double-anti lawsuit. Taiwan was then included in country which was issued by The U.S. government, and the trade diversion effect turned into the trade destruction effect. Therefore, this study used the export data and the revenue of manufactures from January 2010 to December 2016, and found the impact of double-anti lawsuits on the solar manufacturers in Taiwan.
This study uses the Ordinary Least Squares and the Fixed Effect Model. In addition, I used the F test to test which of the methods is more suitable for this study. The study found that the trade diversion effect cannot be seen from the export volume of five trade partners and the revenue of manufactures. However, the trade diversion effect could be seen in the U.S.A empirical results. Therefore, it could be determined that the trade diversion and the order transfer effect of manufacturers in Taiwan were concentrated in a single object. The effect of trade destruction caused by the new double-anti could be found in the empirical results, but it was not significant. It might be due to the delaying effects of double-anti, and the fact that the time of investigation and the final judgment were too close to each other. This might make the trade destruction effect insignificant.||en_US|
