Diplomatic and Economic Archives (Academia Sinica)
The Institute of Modern History, Academia Sinica, has kept a collection of files on foreign and economic offices and data donated by individuals. The files on foreign offices include documents from the Office in Charge of Foreign Affairs (1861-1901), Ministry of External Affairs (1901-1911) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Northern Government (1912-1928). The economic files contain related documents from various economic offices of the Republic of China including the Ministry of Commerce established in 1903 of the late Qing Dynasty until 1949, and various economic offices since Kuomintang Government retreated to Taiwan. Individually donated data cover areas in politics, economics, academics and culture. These are all historical material essential to the study of historic development of modern China and Taiwan after WWII. In addition to selecting of important files for digital replication, building of file indexes and a database for image search to provide online access to authorized readers, this project will also continue to help the installation of a website focused on the modern diplomatic history of China, provide relevant information for platform integration, and promote the education and study of modern diplomatic history.
