Image of «Economic Miracle of Taiwan» in Perception of Russian Society in 1990s

Cover Page


This article examines the formation process of the image of Taiwan that was developed in the public opinion in Russia in 1991–2000. This image has become the base for the future Russian-Taiwanese economic and trade relations. In that period the stereotypes of Taiwan that appeared in the Soviet times underwent fundamental changes, and there appeared a new concept of «economic miracle of Taiwan». This completely different image of Taiwan greatly influenced the economic ties between Russia and Taiwan, and it was considered to be the most suitable model for the Russian economic development.
