Chiang Ching-kuo served as chairman of the Vocational Assistance Commission for Retired Servicemen, minister of national defense, vice-premier, premier, and president of the ROC (for the sixth and seventh terms of that office). He launched the Ten Major Construction Projects and the Twelve New Development Projects, which promoted the nation’s economic prosperity and created the world famous “Taiwan experience.” He undertook political reforms, lifted martial law and bans on the creation of new newspapers and political parties, laying down a solid foundation for a democratic Taiwan.
