Taiwan A to Z: Introduction for Young Adults, published by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of the Republic of China, serves as a brief guide to Taiwan’s political, diplomatic, economic, social and cultural development. The articles in this publication are the result of a nationwide competition for high school students in Taiwan. Students submitted compositions on one or more of the 26 topics, and the winning entries were edited to form the basis of the main passages. This guide attests to Taiwanese young people’s enthusiasm for engaging with societies around the world, and the MOFA sincerely thanks the participating students for their contributions to this project.
