Taiwan is a humble island state located in the Pacific Ocean in Asia. It forms over 99% of the customary Chinese territory. By far, it has relished stable economic relations with China plus intimate political ties with the US. It is officially regarded as a province under China and has had an economically agreeable, but vexatious existence due to incessant constraints laid on it by international powers. Taiwan comprehends very well that putting off of ties with China would only result in economic catastrophe. China too has been repressing Taiwanese efforts to declare itself an independent state. This is likely to continue in the future as well despite oppositions from the Taiwanese people.
According to reports, Taiwan has had quite an economic progress in the recent past. It has been stated by Taiwan itself that it aspires to be self-sufficient, especially in matters of military. It absolutely is looking forward to expand its defense base in order to deter China. Investments in development and education of the military and specialist personnel have led Taiwan into acquiring of aircrafts, defense systems and sophisticated radar devices. For this, it has remained increasingly dependent on the US. Its access to foreign military sales programs also enables it to acquire equipment and research advantages which have been barred to sanction-limited China.
Currently, Taiwan's top focus remains the development of its technological sphere rather than its military. It greatly savors its political adherence by progressing subtly towards higher independence and also establishing diplomatic relations with nearby powers. Due to its highly trafficked trade routes and abundance of oil and gas deposits, there is no doubt that it will tempt many neighboring states to seek claim over this tiny, yet prodigal, island.
Insurgency forces do not exist in Taiwan as the various agencies of state have total control of its security situation. The only threat it faces is that from mainland China, constantly fearing transgression. However, presence of US fleet in Taiwan Straits has definitely helped keeping such possibility at bay so far.
