Taiwan

  • Two gov’ts claim to rule China – the CCP on the mainland and the Nationalist party in Taiwan

  • Neither gov’t has control over the other’s territory but both agree Taiwan is a province of China


Taiwan

  • Until 1971, Taiwan represented China in international affairs

  • In 1971, the U.N. officially recognized the PRC as the legitimate gov’t of China

  • Reunification with the mainland remains CCP’s top foreign policy goal


Taiwan

  • 1979 – Taiwan Relations Act signed between U.S. & Taiwan

  • U.S. promised to provide defensive weapons to Taipei to maintain balance of power w/the mainland

  • Taiwanese gov’t has no interest in being absorbed by China


Taiwan

  • By late 1980s, Taiwan became major industrial power (often referred to as “little Japan”)

  • Good economic relationship with China but poor political one

  • Current KMT administration is in favor of improving relations w/Beijing

  • Most support status quo


Taiwan

  • CHINA-TAIWAN RELATIONS

  • Ruled separately since end of Chinese civil war in 1949

  • China considers the island part of its territory

  • China has offered a "one country, two systems" solution, like Hong Kong

  • Most in Taiwan support status quo

  • Relations between Beijing and Taipei have been improving in recent years since pro-Beijing President Ma Ying-jeou took power in Taiwan
