What to watch for in TAIWAN: What’s next for the TAIWs?
With TAIwans new leader, how does the country see itself heading into 2018?
The nation of 2.3 million people was split into two halves, with the eastern half comprising the island of Taoyuan and the western half the rest of Taiwan.
It has been ruled by Chinese President Ma Ying-jeou for three decades.
Taiwan is one of China’s most important economic assets and it’s one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia.
But the island has struggled to develop its own currency and a growing number of mainland Chinese companies have bought up shares in Taiwan companies.
Taoyuan has seen some of the most dramatic changes since the mainland seized control of the island in 1979.
It was split in two in 1996 and then the two halves have been running separate businesses since then.
Now, the island is facing new challenges.
The Chinese government is looking to modernise the economy, which means it is also looking to privatise some of its assets.
New Taipei Mayor, Ma Ying, wants to modernisationThe island has been looking for ways to modernize its economy since the early 1990s, when it was split off from mainland China.
Its new mayor, Ma Qing-huai, says it will modernise its economy by privatising some of Taiwan’s assets.
He says it is looking for companies to be incorporated in the island, and to allow it to become a more flexible trading hub.
The city-state has not yet launched any plans for the island to be an independent nation-state, but has said it is interested in a future state where it would not be required to adhere to China’s strict economic rules.
Taewan is a former French colony that was annexed in 1949.
It is now the home to about 2.2 million people, mostly mainland Chinese.
Taewans economic history is also a part of mainland China’s history.
It was a colony of the United States before being given independence by the Communists in 1949, and it later became an independent country.
In 1979, the United Nations declared Taiwan a nation state, which meant it was given a vote in the international community.
It still does not have a formal constitution.
