Anton Philips 安東‧ 飛利浦

36年前一席簡報促成飛利浦登台 2000?

記者鄭秋霜

總統府資政李國鼎昨 (31)日病逝,留給親朋故舊無限追思。鮮為人知的是,李國鼎36年前的一席簡報,成了在台最大外資企業──台灣飛利浦來台投資的最大「推手」。

前台灣飛利浦總裁羅益強昨天回憶這段往事。當年擔任經濟部長的李國鼎,在蔣中正總統授意下,為荷蘭飛利浦公司董事長佛瑞德‧飛利浦(Fred Philips)做了一次有關台灣發展的簡報,令佛瑞德深刻印象,進而在飛利浦董事會中獨排眾議,決讓飛利浦到台灣投資。

佛瑞德對李國鼎的簡報印象深刻,因為李國鼎詳細向他介紹台灣正在發展的加工出口區,並且非常明確地指出台灣經濟未來發展的方向,令佛瑞德很感興趣。佛瑞德回國後,在董事會提出赴台灣投資的想法。董事們面面相覷,「台灣在那裡」是大家共同的疑問,終於搞清楚後,接下來的問題是「要去投資什麼?」

佛瑞德建議,到台灣投資做電腦記憶盤(core memory),董事們又有意見了,認為這個可以用在電話交換機裡的東西,怎麼可以到那麼遠、又沒什麼工業基礎的地方去做,討論半天,決定「擇日再議」。但佛瑞德無法忘記李國鼎簡報時,描繪台灣經濟發展前景,決定在董事會中「二度闖關」。這次董事們還是覺得這產品太精密,不能到台灣投資,佛瑞德 只好開放投票表決,投票結果是10票對1票,「壓倒性地不贊成」。佛瑞德只好「以一擋十」、獨排眾議,決定飛利浦公司到台灣設廠投資。
