In the 1950s, after the Nationalist government fled to Taiwan, land reform and community development was carried out by the Sino-American Joint Commission on Rural Reconstruction.

This course of action was made attractive, in part, by the fact that many of the large landowners were Japanese who had fled, and the other large landowners were compensated with Japanese commercial and industrial properties seized after Taiwan reverted from Japanese rule in 1945.

The land program succeeded also because the Kuomintang were mostly from mainland China and had few ties to the remaining indigenous landowners.[1]
