Taipei (Taibei), provisional capital of the Republic of China - Taiwan, the main administrative, commercial, manufacturing, and cultural center of the island. The first settlement on the present-day site of T'aipei was established in the 1700s. Taipei is a city of many faces, where ancient and modern co-exist. Where rice paddies stretched for miles only 30 years ago, glass-faced highrise office buildings, luxury condominiums, and modern department stores tower above wide, tree-lined boulevards. The Los Angeles - Taipei Sister City Committee was established in 1979. Taipei is the capital and largest city in Taiwan. It is California's fourth largest trading partner. It is the nation's intent to become an "Asia Pacific Regional Operations Center."
