In 1949, towards the end of the war with the Communist regime of mainland China, Chiang Kai-shek withdrew to the island with 500,000 nationalist Kuomintang troops. Taiwan became the headquarters of the Kuomintang, which held power continuously until defeated in presidential elections in 2000. Since the 1950s Taiwan has undergone steady economic growth, especially in its export industries.
