Officially known as the Republic of China (ROC), Taiwan is an island country in east Asia, at the join of the East and South China Seas. It lies south-east of China and south-west of Japan. The country comprises over 160 islands, of which Taiwan is the largest. The capital is Taipei.
Taiwan has had a chequered history. The country was settled thousands of years ago and became a Dutch colony in the seventeenth century, with significant Han Chinese immigration. Taiwan was then annexed by the Chinese Qing dynasty and ceded to Japan in 1895. After WWII, China reasserted control over Taiwan. With the rise of Communist China, ROC lost all mainland interests and retreated to Taiwan and its surrounding islands. Taiwan has effectively been independent since 1950. Its status is contentious, however, with only thirteen member states of the UN giving recognition. Taiwan is run as a multi-party democracy with 22 sub-national divisions.
The latter half of the twentieth century witnessed Taiwan’s rapid economic and industrial growth, which is often referred to as the “Taiwan Miracle”. This has ensured that Taiwan is one of the four Asian Tiger states (along with Singapore, South Korea and Hong Kong). Taiwan’s industrialisation was driven by the textiles and then the electronics industries. It is now a major financial services and information technology hub. Although intensive farming is still practised where possible, agriculture contributes a very small amount to the economy. Taiwan exports steel and is one of the largest yacht-building countries in the world. Despite political disagreement, economic links with the People’s Republic of China have become stronger. It is one of the most densely populated nations in the world and very heavily urbanised.
Taiwanese culture is a mixture of Chinese, Japanese and indigenous heritage. Increasingly, western influences are more prevalent. Music, both classical and modern, is renowned in Taiwan. It has a thriving film industry and karaoke is very popular. The national sport is baseball.
Although a founding member of the United Nations, the Republic of China (Taiwan) is no longer recognised as a member as it has been usurped by the People’s Republic of China.
