IMF Succumbs To China; Mentions Taiwan As A Chinese Province

Published

on

Has the International Monetary Fund (IMF) succumbed to Chinese pressure and listed Taiwan as a province of China on its website?

In the IMF’s DataMapper section under “Real GDP Growth” for 2020, Taiwan is kept separate from China, but it is still labelled “Taiwan Province of China,” reports TaiwanNews.

A search for the country under the “Data” tab in the “World Economic Outlook Database” section under “Advanced Economies” will also find Taiwan mislabeled, while searching under the “Countries” tab does not even yield a result.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said that it has apprised its officials in the U.S. to consult the IMF, and the ministry called on the global body to maintain impartiality and make the required revisions to the country’s name, according to CNA.

MOFA also expressed disappointment with Beijing for exerting pressure on the IMF and other organizations in the United Nations system to list Taiwan as a part of China. The ministry said it will continue to demand naming corrections.
