In 1949, a long-standing civil war between two political parties in China resulted in the country being split into two states.
They became known as The People's Republic of China, led by the Communist Party and a man named Mao Zedong, who took control of the mainland; and the Republic of China, led by the Kuomintang party – now known as the island of Taiwan, which lies off the coast of China.
The National Day of the People’s Republic of China is celebrated on 1 October each year. 2019 is the 70th Anniversary.

"I enjoyed learning how to deal with situations emerging from cultural differences within the USA (dialects, accents). Some really helpful insight into the American mind-set, especially business life. Also, the ability to phrase things in a way that US clients understand. Now I understand that there are some things here in the EU that US citizens never use so cannot understand."
