Boom in Taiwan for Banned Chinese Language Books

Taiwan has seen a boom in the trade of Chinese language books in recent years. Imported and published books banned by the Chinese government in China for containing what it deems to be, sensitive subjects, can be easily bought in Taiwan. Chinese tourists and students go to Taiwan and freely buy the banned books in the Taiwanese bookshops or book exhibitions.

The Taipei International Book Exhibition opened recently selling many of the censored Chinese language books banned in China.
