In January 1982, Governor Tai Chung-yu of Fujian Provincial Government advised President Chiang Ching-kuo to simplify the organizational structure of Fujian Provincial Government.
After the Fujian Provincial Government relocated from Kinmen to Taiwan in July 1956, it had no actual government affairs and only had to handle general administrative matters. As a result, Governor Tai Chung-yu wrote to the President several times to suggest abolishing the Fujian Provincial Government. The first time was in September 1961. After seven years in office, Governor Tai considered the provincial government to be an organization with no real responsibilities and asked the President to consider abolishing or merging it, but President Chiang Kai-shek only responded with: “Read”. In March 1972, Governor Tai again suggested to President Chiang Kai-shek that the Fujian Provincial Government be abolished, and that the work of maintaining contact with the overseas Fujianese Chinese and restoration work of Fujian in China could be handled by the Kinmen-Matsu Military Administration, but it was not approved. This document presents: In November 1982, Governor Tai Chung-yu wrote to President Chiang Ching-kuo three times, suggesting that the Fujian Provincial Government should adopt a “figurehead system” for the time being, with the Ministry of the Interior handling general administration, the Minister of the Interior also holding the position of provincial governor, and no establishment of the provincial government committee. After the Secretary-General of the Presidential Office coordinated with Executive Yuan Premier Sun Yun-suan, the Secretary-General Ma Chi-chuang of the Presidential Office formally replied to Governor Tai Chung-yu that the current system would still be maintained.
