The Taiwan Provincial Government (TPG) is the provincial government that governs Taiwan Province of the Republic of China (ROC) which is one of the two provinces it controls, the other being the Fujian Province. The government headquarters are located at Zhongxing New Village, Nantou City, Nantou County.


To takeover Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China on 25 October 1945, the ROC Central Government in Nanking promulgated the Taiwan Province Administrative Official Public Ministry Organization Statute on 20 September 1945. It established the Taiwan Province Administrative Official Public Ministry temporarily under the Executive Yuan to serve as the highest local administrative agency in Taiwan Province on 25 October 1945 and became the Taiwan Provincial Government in April 1947 through a resolution passed during the 784th meeting of the Executive Yuan.

Since the streamlining of the Taiwan Provincial Government in 1998, major operations of the provincial government had been transferred to the Executive Yuan.
