Time in Taiwan
| National Standard Time ： ウィキペディア英語版|
National Standard Time (, see below) is the official time zone in Taiwan defined by an UTC offset of +08:00. This standard is also known as Taiwan Time (), Taipei Time () and historically as ''Chungyuan Standard Time'' () until the early 2000s.
The first time zone standard in Taiwan was enforced in January 1, 1896, the second year of Taiwan under Japanese rule. The standard is called with time offset of UTC+08:00, based on 120°E longitude. In October 1, 1937, the Western Standard Time zone is abolished and the , with time offset of UTC+09:00, was enforced in the entire country of Japan including Taiwan. This time was used until the end of the World War II. In September 21, 1945, the Governor-General of Taiwan announced to revoke the order in 1937.
After the World War II, Taiwan was annexed to the five time zones system of the Republic of China and was classified in the ''Chungyuan Standard Time'' () with time offset of UTC+08:00. After the Chinese Civil War in 1949, the Central Government of the Republic of China retreated to Taiwan and lost nearly all the territory of mainland China. From this time, the five time zones system was no longer implemented except ''Chungyuan Standard Time'' on Taiwan. After the 1990s, the democratization movement brought more localization thinking in Taiwan. The term ''Chungyuan'' (Zhongyuan), which means the Central Plain of China, is considered as Sinocentrism. Thus the government on Taiwan now favors the term ''National Standard Time'' () as official use. Along with the governmental standard, popular alternatives include ''Taiwan Standard Time'' (), ''Taipei Time'' () and ''Formosan Time'' ().
Daylight saving time was implemented in Taiwan after the World War II on the summer of 1946–1961, 1974, 1975, 1979. 〔
