We make a computation, based on comparative advantage theories and using the NX and RCA index, of trade comparative advantages of Taiwan＇s agricultural produce in recent 10. The result revealsthat agricultural produce in Taiwan, as a whole, does not have much competitive advantage. The livestock and fishery products have some comparative advantages and they are the major types of agricultural exports, whereas the crop products show little competitive advantage and they are on the net import side. The labor-intensive products have been turning from comparative advantage products into comparative disadvantage products.
