Focus on Taiwan: Introduction

This small island covered in enchanting scenery, which has earned the name “Ilha Formosa” (the beautiful island), has about 23.1 million inhabitants. Two-thirds of the surface area is mountainous – the largely urban population is spread out over the habitable surface area, thus making it one of the world most densely populated countries. Mandarin is the official language, but unlike mainland China, it is still the traditional writing system that prevails. Well educated, Taiwanese people have a predilection for engineering. Incidentally, the Republic of China is one of the top five countries producing PhD’s engineers (Engineering Trends). Taiwanese people are very fond of high-technology: the capital Taipei has been well-known to possess the largest Wi-Fi network in the world (Taipei Times), and their prime minister is working hard so that the entire island will be recognized for it in the near future.
