"Ever since 1949, China's policies towards overseas Chinese have undergone many different changes. Although the basic concepts are not totally wrong the implementation of these policies has witnessed many too mistakes. In principle, China's overseas Chinese policies are just part of its policy for national development and has thus always been affected by internal and external factors. The Three Red Flags (The Great Leap Forward Movement) in the 1950s and the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s caused tremendous damage to China's appeals to overseas Chinese. Even at the end of the 1980s, China was still paying the price for mistakes done in the past.
However, since the implementation of the open door policy and the redress of mistakes of the past, we have witnessed the growing of China's strength and its interest in the overseas Chinese, both for political and economic reasons. China wants to lure talented overseas Chinese (especially those with economic power) for its modernization program. In addition, Beijing has become more active in forming a united front with overseas Chinese to fight the trend of Taiwan's independence. In the foreseeable future more and more overseas Chinese and associations might turn to Beijing's appeals. If Taiwan does not want to lose the support of overseas Chinese, it should find a way to deal with this tread.
