Name[edit] New Taipei
Taipei
City was known as Taipei
Taipei
County before its upgrade in 2010. After the county's population overtook that of Taipei
Taipei
City, it was decided that the county should be upgraded to city status but could not be renamed " Taipei
Taipei
City". The name of the new entity (新北市; "new north city") was at first rendered in English as Xinbei via pinyin romanization,[5][6] but both candidates for the city's first mayoral election opposed the name. Consequently, citing public opinion, the inaugural mayor, Eric Chu, requested and received approval from the Ministry of the Interior (MOI) to render the name in English as New Taipei
Taipei
City.[7][8] This rendering became official on 31 December 2010. History[edit] Archaeological records had shown that New Taipei
Taipei
City had been inhabited since the Neolithic
Neolithic
period, with artifacts dug in Bali District having shown remains as early as 7000 to 4700 BC. The region around New Taipei
Taipei
City area was once inhabited by Ketagalan plains aborigines, and evidence shows that the Atayal had inhabited Wulai District. The earliest recorded migration by people from mainland China dated back as early as 1620, when the local tribes were driven into the mountain areas. Over the years, many of the aborigines have assimilated into the general population.[9] Qing Dynasty[edit] During the Qing Dynasty rule of Taiwan, the Han Chinese
Han Chinese
people began to settle in the area now designated as New Taipei
Taipei
City in 1694 and the number of immigrants from mainland China had further increased. After decades of development and prosperity, Tamsui had become an international commercial port by 1850. British consulate and stores were established in the region, which helped promote the local tea business, resulting in massive tea leaf exports to Europe. In 1875, Shen Baozhen
Shen Baozhen
called for the establishment of Taipeh Prefecture. Fujian-Taiwan-Province
Fujian-Taiwan-Province
was declared in 1887 and the present-day New Taipei
Taipei
City area fell under the jurisdiction of Taipeh Prefecture.[10][11] Empire of Japan[edit] In 1895, Taiwan
Taiwan
was ceded by Qing dynasty
Qing dynasty
to Empire of Japan. During Japanese rule, New Taipei
Taipei
City area was administered under Taihoku Prefecture together with modern-day Taipei, Keelung
Keelung
and Yilan County. Discovery of gold and other mining minerals were unveiled at Keelung Mountain, triggering a mining boom in the region. In October 1896, the Japanese government divided the mining area around Keelung
Keelung
Mountain into two districts: an eastern district, designated as Kinkaseki, and a western district, designated as Kyūfun. Both districts are now parts of Ruifang District. They also issued regulations prohibiting local Taiwanese mining companies from doing mining activities, and gave the mining rights to Japanese companies.[12] Republic of China[edit] After the handover of Taiwan
Taiwan
from Japan to the Republic of China
Republic of China
in October 1945, from 25 December of the same year, the present New Taipei
Taipei
City area was administered as a county called Taipei
Taipei
County of Taiwan
Taiwan
Province with Banqiao City as the county seat. In July 1949, the size of Taipei
Taipei
County was reduced when Beitou
Beitou
and Shilin townships were put under the jurisdiction of the newly created Caoshan Administrative Bureau, which would later be renamed the Yangmingshan Administrative Bureau. On July 1, 1968, the size of Taipei
Taipei
County was further reduced by 205.16 km2 (79.21 sq mi) when Jingmei, Muzha, Nangang, and Neihu townships, along with Beitou
Beitou
and Shilin, were merged into Taipei
Taipei
City. The county afterward had ten county-controlled cities (Banqiao, Luzhou, Sanchong, Shulin, Tucheng, Xizhi, Xindian, Xindian, Yonghe, Zhonghe); four urban townships (Tamsui, Ruifang, Sanxia, Yingge); and fifteen rural townships (Bali, Gongliao, Jinshan, Linkou, Pinglin, Pingxi, Sanzhi, Shenkeng, Shiding, Shimen, Shuangxi, Taishan, Wanli, Wugu, Wulai). It was further divided into 1,017 villages and 21,683 neighborhoods.[13] In August 1992, due to the adjustment of the demarcation line between Taipei
Taipei
City and Taiwan
Taiwan
Province in Neigou and Daking Stream, the area of Taipei
Taipei
County was decreased by 0.03 km2.[14] On 25 December 2010, Taipei
Taipei
County was upgraded to a special municipality as New Taipei
Taipei
City consisting of 29 districts with Banqiao District
Banqiao District
as the municipal seat.[15] Geography[edit]
