Sometimes when I sign up for websites I notice that they incorrectly label Taiwan as “Taiwan, Province of China”. This isn’t always the website’s fault as sometimes they may be using an automatic naming system where they get a list of names from Google or somewhere else. So, there’s no use getting angry and calling the company a sucker to China. They simply don’t know.
What you can do is write an email or fill out one of the feedback surveys they often ask you to fill out. Here’s the one I wrote to Disclosure Scotland after applying for my criminal background check.
Together, if we simply inform and educate others people will begin to realise what Taiwan is. Unfortunately we can’t all be aware of the issues going on around the world so there’s use in blaming those who don’t know.
