The Industry and Commerce Activities of Japanese Settlers in Taiwan during the Early Japanese Colonial Period
日据时期,台湾岛内日本人的工商业活动构成了殖民地经济的一个重要组成部分,不应被我们忽视。日本占据台湾后,大量日本工商业者,上至御用商人,下至小商人随即来到台湾寻求经济利益。一方面,殖民当局赋予他们特权和便利,使得他们能迅速占有和攫取台湾重要的资源——黄金和樟脑;另一方面,和垄断资本不同,他们的经济活动更多地受到殖民当局政策的影响。The industry and commerce activities of Japanese settlers in Taiwan were important parts of colonial economy during the Japanese colonial period. Many Japanese merchants went to Taiwan to seek economic profits after Taiwan was occupied by Japan. One hand, they possessed and grabbed the important resources of Taiwan – gold and camphor –rapidly by the privilege and convenient that the Japanese colonial government had entrusted to them. On the other hand, not alike the Japanese monopoly capital that entered Taiwan, their economic activities were more influenced by the colonial government.
