Before 1980s, the authoritarian state with strong capacity and will to lead economic development and social policy. It was thus explained as one typical case of so-called productivist welfare regime. After 1990s, democratization and economic liberalization limited state capabilities to lead economic development. However, due to electoral competition, the ruler must gain public support by social policy. Thus, Taiwan's welfare system was gradually transformed into developmental welfare regime. After 2000, The new government faced the consequences of economic liberalization, political conflict, and the challenges of different interest groups. All these factors constrained the state capacity to sustain the developmental welfare regime.

Due to democratization, state capacity for welfare developmentalism has been weakens during in 2000-2008. In conclusion, the East Asian developmental welfare regime has changed in the case of Taiwan.
