In the course of 1949, the Communists obtained full control of the mainland of China. During 1950, the People’s Government extended its hold over most islands off the coast, including Hainan. The Kuomintang regime under Chiang Kai-shek continues to exercise authority in Taiwan (Formosa) and a few small island groups.
