Economy

  • Taiwan has a developed capitalist economy that ranks as the 19th largest in the world in GDP and 23rd in nominal terms. The Republic of China governs Taiwan with gradually decreasing guidance in the areas of investment and foreign trade.
  • Most large government-owned banks and industrial firms have been privatized.
  • Real growth in GDP has averaged about 8% during the past three decades. Exports have grown even faster and, since World War II, have provided the primary impetus for industrialization.
  • Taiwanese investors and businesses have become major investors in mainland China, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

History

  • The New Taiwan Dollar was first issued by the Bank of Taiwan on June 15, 1949 to replace the Old Taiwan Dollar at the rate of 40,000 old Dollars = 1 new Dollar.
  • The main aim of the New Taiwan Dollar was to end the hyperinflation that had plagued Taiwan and mainland China due to the Chinese civil war fought in mainland China.
  • Taiwan has transformed itself from a recipient of U.S. aid in the 1950s and early 1960s to an aid donor and major foreign investor. Private Taiwanese investment in mainland China is estimated to be in excess of 150 billion USD, and official sources cite Taiwan as having invested a comparable amount in Southeast Asia.
  • In July, 2000 the New Taiwan Dollar became the official currency of the ROC and is no longer secondary to the silver Yuan. At the same time, the Central Bank of China (now known as the Central Bank of the Republic of China) began issuing New Taiwan Dollar banknotes, and the old notes issued by the Bank of Taiwan were taken out of circulation.

Economy

  • Zambia's economy has experienced strong growth in recent years, with real GDP growth more than 6% per year since 2005.
  • Copper output has increased, thanks to copper mine privatization, higher copper prices and more foreign investment.
  • Record high copper prices and a bumper maize crop in 2010 helped Zambia rebound quickly from the world economic slowdown that began in 2008.
  • Poverty remains a significant problem in Zambia, despite its stronger economy. Almost 70% of Zambians live below the national poverty line (almost 80% in rural areas).
  • Zambia ranks among the world's poorest nations in a variety of economic and social statistics and surveys: GDP per capita, competitiveness, life expectancy, infant mortality, and so on. A high birth rate and relatively high rate of HIV/AIDS put further strain on the economy.

History

  • Zambia gained independence from Great Britain in 1964. In 1968, the Zambian Kwacha replaced the Pound at a rate of two Kwacha = 1 Pound.
  • Kenneth Kaunda was the first president of Zambia in 1964, and stayed in office until 1991. During his regime, the value of the currency was fixed at a rate of approximately 1.2 Kwacha to 1 US Dollar. Until 1991, all Zambian banknotes featured a portrait of Kaunda on the obverse side (his image was later replaced by an African fish eagle).
  • A severe economic crisis stemming from poor government oversight and overspending contributed to high inflation throughout the 1990s and 2000s. By 2006, it took 4,800 Kwacha to buy one US Dollar. The currency has more recently stabilized.
