The Official Residence of the President of the Republic of China is provided by the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) for the President, while in office, along with his or her family. The current official residence is at the intersection of Chongqing South Road Section 2 and Aiguo West Road, Zhongzheng, Taipei, and has been in use since Lee Teng-hui's presidency. Security of the residence is maintained by the Sixth Special Corps of the National Police Agency along with a wall along the perimeter of the complex.

AliasEdit

The Official Residence takes on a different alias depending on the code name assigned by the National Security Bureau. The code name is usually selected depending on the current state of the nation, the transfer of power between political parties, or the incoming President's style of governance and ideals.
