From January 2019, the former operations of the Fujian Provincial Government will be taken over by the Executive Yuan.
The Fujian Provincial Government and the Taiwan Provincial Government were both provincial-level authorities, but the process of promoting local self-governance was different because of Fujian Provincial Government’s incomplete jurisdictions. The Fujian Provincial Government did not establish a Provincial Council or a Provincial Consultative Council, nor has it ever held a gubernatorial election, but both were eventually discontinued due to a policy decision to “streamline” provincial authorities. On June 28, 2018, Executive Yuan President Lai Ching-te proposed at the 3606th session of the Executive Yuan to zero out the budget of provincial-level organs starting from 2019, and on December 31, 2018, the Fujian Provincial Government officially ended its operations. This is an official document signed by the Executive Yuan on January 2, 2019, which states that in line with the transfer of operations from provincial-level agencies, the Executive Yuan will take over the administrative services of the Fujian Provincial Government and the operation of the Kinmen-Matsu Joint Services Center, Executive Yuan, from January 1, 2019. Although the operations of the Fujian Provincial Government had ended, the central government’s services to the people of Kinmen and Matsu remain uninterrupted. The Kinmen-Matsu Joint Services Center established by the Executive Yuan is still located at the original site of the Fujian Provincial Government, where resources are integrated to assist in the promotion of various affairs of the municipalities in the Kinmen-Matsu region and strengthen services to the people of the Kinmen-Matsu region.
