This covered most of mainland China as well as Taiwan. From the 16th century through the 19th century, this diocese was divided several times. In chronological order, Taiwan belonged to the dioceses of Nanking ( 1660), Fukien ( 1696) and Amoy/ Hsiamen ( 1883). ...more on Wikipedia about "Catholic Church in Taiwan"

Chinese (re)unification ( ) is a goal of Chinese nationalism that refers to the reunification of all of " China" under a single political entity. As Hong Kong and Macau have been reunited with mainland China under the sovereignty of the People's Republic of China, the only outstanding issue under active debate is between the mainland and Taiwan (and the islands of the Pescadores, Quemoy, Matsu), which have continued to be administered by the Republic of China. The two sides have been separated since the end of the Chinese Civil War in 1949 when the victorious Communists founded the People's Republic of China in mainland China while the defeated Nationalists retreated to Taiwan, which had been returned from Japan in 1945. ...more on Wikipedia about "Chinese reunification"

Cross-Strait Relations, or Relations across the Taiwan Strait, deals with the complex relationship and interactions between the Mainland China (which sits on the west of Taiwan_Strait) and Taiwan (which is located in the east of the Strait). Prior to 1949, the cross-Strait relations was simple. During the Qing Dynasty ( 1684– 1895) or early post-WWII years ( 1945– 1949), the two parts are nothing more than subnational divisions of a single country; and during Taiwan's Japanese colonial period ( 1895– 1945), the two sides held ordinary international relations. However in 1949, the Kuomintang (Nationalists) was defeated by the Communist Party of China on Mainland, a government named People's Republic of China was founded in Beijing by the communists, and the government of the original Republic of China was forced to retreat to Taipei. Since then, the two sides have entered a period of unsettled status and special relationship where they are neither in one simple state nor two simple separate countries, therefore the politically correct term "cross-Strait relations" was formed so that the relationship between Mainland China and Taiwan would not be inappropriately referred as "China-Taiwan relations" or "PRC-ROC relations". ...more on Wikipedia about "Cross-Strait relations"
The Culture of Taiwan is a blend of traditional Chinese with significant Asian influences notably Japanese and Western influences including American, Spanish and Dutch. The Taiwanese aboriginals also have a distinct culture. Fine arts, folk traditions, and popular culture embody traditional and modern, Asian, and Western motifs.

The Republic of China on Taiwan and other islands has a dynamic capitalist economy with gradually decreasing guidance of investment and foreign trade by the government. In keeping with this trend, some large government-owned banks and industrial firms are being privatized. Real growth in GDP has averaged about 8% during the past three decades. Exports have grown even faster and have provided the primary impetus for industrialization. Inflation and unemployment are low; the trade surplus is substantial; and foreign reserves are the world's third largest. Agriculture contributes 3% to GDP, down from 35% in 1952. Traditional labor-intensive industries are steadily being moved off-shore and replaced with more capital- and technology-intensive industries. Taiwan has become a major investor in mainland China, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Vietnam. The tightening of labor markets has led to an influx of foreign workers, both legal and illegal. Because of its conservative financial approach and its entrepreneurial strengths, Taiwan suffered little compared with many of its neighbors from the Asian financial crisis in 1998-1999. ...more on Wikipedia about "Economy of Taiwan"
