On August 31, 1975, then-Premier Chiang Ching-kuo visited the islet and met with the soldiers stationed there.[4]

At around 3 PM on August 16, 2016, the Fuxing Islet defense force discovered a corpse on the shore of the islet.[13]

On the night of October 19, 2016, the Coast Guard seized a fishing boat with a four man crew captained by a native of Fujian, PRC that was found operating 0.2 nautical miles from Fuhsing Islet (Fuxing Islet). In October 2016, the Coast Guard had arrested thirty-four crewman from ten Chinese boats in the Kinmen County area.[5]

I took a fast boat from Tatan to Fuhsing Islet, where I had lunch with the officers and men to judge the quality of food served to the armed forces at the front. I also tasted the canned fruit and approved of it. The setting was beautiful and natural. The wide sea below was spotted with fishing boats, and the experience was exhilarating. The friendship and sincerity of the armed forces impressed me. I continued inspection of various facilities in the afternoon and became more firmly convinced of the truth of the maxim that "The diligence of man is certain to break down natural barriers." As night fell, I returned to Kinmen.
