Economic Archives

The Economic Archives constitute the largest single set of materials in the Archive, and include the records of the Commerce Ministry (1903-1906), the Ministry of Agriculture & Commerce (1913-1927), the Economic Ministry (1938-) and documents from various economic offices written after the Kuomintang Government retreated to Taiwan. These are the most important primary source materials on the economic development of China and Taiwan in the twentieth century.
