Taipei, the provisional capital of Taiwan, is the primary administrative, commercial, manufacturing, and cultural center of the island. Taipei is a city of many faces, as the ancient and modern co-exist. Where rice paddies stretched for miles only 30 years ago, glass-faced high-rise office buildings, luxury condominiums, and modern department stores now tower above wide, tree-lined boulevards. The Los Angeles - Taipei Sister City Committee was established in 1979 Taipei is California's fourth largest trading partner.
