The 9th National Congress of Kuomintang (Chinese: 中國國民黨第九次全國代表大会) was the ninth national congress of Kuomintang (KMT), held on 29 March - 9 April 1969 at Chung-Shan Building,[1] Beitou, Taipei, Taiwan.[2]


KMT Director-General Chiang Kai-shek spoke to more than 1,200 delegates and observers from Taiwan, Mainland China and overseas communities around the world. He provided guidance of discussion and debate. KMT made final plans for the last stage of struggle against Mao Zedong and the Communist Party of China (CPC) to liberate the 700 million Chinese in the mainland and to assure peace in Asia and the world.[3]

KMT Secretary-General Chang Pao-shu said that the congress came at a time when the Republic of China was intensifying preparations for the retaking back of the Mainland as the CPC government stood at the brink of collapse due to Great Leap Forward.[4]

A party reform charter was also adopted and a provision providing for a Vice Chairman was scrapped.
