Taiwan fell one place in the annual International Institute for Management and Development (IMD) World Talent Ranking for 2016, moving from 23rd place last year to 24th, but remaining fourth in Asia. Published Tuesday, the report assessed the ability of 61 economies to develop, attract and retain talent for enterprises operating in those economies. The ranking is based on three factors: investment and development of home-grown talent; appeal — the ability of the country to tap into the overseas talent pool; and readiness — the availability of skills and competencies in the talent pool. In the three main categories, Taiwan fell 10 notches to 28th place in the area of investment and development, the report said. Taiwan remains No. 26 in the area of appeal, but slipped one place from last year to No. 26 in the category of readiness, it added. In Asia, Taiwan is behind only Hong Kong (10th), Singapore (15th) and Malaysia (19th). Japan was ranked 30th, followed by Thailand (37th), South Korea (38th) and China (43rd).
