Background Information :Taiwan (traditional Chinese: ç¦üú or Åüú; simplified Chinese: Å ¾; Tongyong Pinyin: TÈíiwan; Hanyu Pinyin: TÈíiwýün; Wade-Giles: T'aiÃ-wanÃ ; Taiwanese (Hokkien): TÈói-oÈón/Týüi-oÈón (historically ñºüú/ Å ôí/ ñº ôí/ Å £ô/ ñº £ô/ Å¬¨ü)) is an island in East Asia. "Taiwan" is also commonly used to refer to the territories governed by the Republic of China (ROC) and to ROC itself, which governs the island of Taiwan, Orchid Island and Green Island in the Pacific off the Taiwan coast, the Penghu islands in the Tiwan Strait, and Kinmen and the Matsu Islands off the coast of mainland Fujian. The island groups of Taiwan and Penghu (except the municipalities of Taipei and Kaohsiung) are officially administered as Taiwan Province of the ROC. However, in practice, almost all government power is exercised at the national and local (city/county) levels.
Taiwan is also currently claimed by the People's Republic of China (PRC) although the PRC has never controlled Taiwan or any of the current ROC territory commonly referred to as "Taiwan". The PRC justifies its claim by arguing that the PRC succeeded the ROC in 1949, and pointing out that the ROC had ruled Taiwan for four years from 1945 to 1949.
