  Taiwan (China) 
Description
Also called Formosa from a name given by Portuguese explorers, Taiwan has jurisdiction over at least 20 islands extending along the Chinese coast as well as about 60 more in the Pescadores Islands, just west of Taiwan. It has one of the world's strongest economies and is among the ten leading merchandise exporters. The 30 newspapers and radio stations and three television stations are under a relaxed government control. Taiwan has a well-developed health care system. Seventh-day Adventist members in Taiwan tend to be elderly. In many cases youth (especially from our schools) and women are the backbone of mission and evangelism. Administrators and staff of Taiwan Adventist Academy and College are reaching people, and they intend to target the growing number of non-Adventist students who attend these schools.
