Modern Governance

Map:Modern Governance
When the Japanese ruled Taiwan, they built their administration based on Western principles, and considered themselves as representatives of modern civilization. The supreme authority on the island was the Office of the Governor-General, which was connected and subordinate to the Imperial Japanese Government, while superior to local city halls. Its professional staff ensured that the bureaucratic processes of administration were efficient. Combined with the police and Baojia system, this office was responsible for public security and the implementation of policies, and along with the school system for the education of the people, these were the three major tools by which colonial rule was enforced.
