||<p>Her Majesty’s Government’s long-standing policy on Taiwan has not changed. The
British Government refers to Taiwan as simply “Taiwan” and, when included in a list
of places, does so under an inclusive heading, such as “country/territory” or “world
locations”. When guidance has been sought from HMG on the terminology to use, we have
been clear about the British Government’s terminology for Taiwan.</p><p>Private companies
and organisations should be able to decide the terminology that they use to list destinations.
UK companies should not be placed under political pressure to make changes. FCO Officials
have registered our concern with the Chinese Government on this point.</p><p></p>
