Share Taiwan with the World
21 Nov, 2013 | From Hsu-wen of Taiwan
Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a state in East Asia. Taiwan is an island which has for all practical purposes been independent since 1950, but which China regards as a rebel region that must be reunited with the mainland.
The island of Taiwan (formerly known as "Formosa") was mainly inhabited by Taiwanese aborigines until the Dutch and Spanish settlement during the Age of Discovery in the 17th century, when ethnic Chinese began immigrating to the island.
