Feasibility of Negotiating Social Security Agreement with Other Countries: Example of the Labor Insurance in Taiwan
ABSTRACT

This research analyzes the social security agreements negotiated by other countries, and evaluates the feasibility of negotiating such agreement with respect to the Labor Insurance in Taiwan. In consideration of administrative and political factors, some prerequisites have to be achieved to realize such feasibility. Due to imminent demand to negotiate such agreement, some suggestions are provided. 1) Short-term strategies: Plan to analyze the impacts of double insurance exemption on stakeholders. 2) Medium-term strategies: implement ameliorated Labor Insurance statistics, try to complete the negotiation of social security agreements of double insurance exemption. 3) Long-term strategies: Plan to apply totalization mechanism among various social insurances.
