HistoryEdit

After the end of Chinese Civil War in 1949, the Fujian (Fukien) provincial government was moved from Foochow to Kinmen. The provincial government was relocated to Hsintien Township, Taipei County within Taiwan Province in 1956. On 15 January 1996, the provincial government moved back to Kinmen County.[2]

On July 1, 2018, by a resolution passed during the 3606th meeting of the Executive Yuan, all the remaining duties were transferred to the National Development Council and other ministries of the Executive Yuan.[3] The transformations are scheduled to be done before the end of year 2018. However, the government will keep the position of Governor of Fujian Province to comply with the requirement set by the Additional Articles of the Constitution.

Government structureEdit

Currently, the only official who serves in the provincial government is the Governor of Fujian Province (also called the Chairperson of the Fujian Provincial Government). The Governor is usually also a minister without portfolio in Executive Yuan.

The provincial government does not have any physical building or office space after all its functionalities were handed to the central government in 2018. Historically, the provincial government was located in Jincheng, Kinmen from 1949 to 1956, and in Hsintien, Taipei County from 1956 to January 1996, and in Jincheng, Kinmen again from January 1996 to 2018.
