a province in eastern China
Origin: From Mandarin 福建 (Fújiàn)
Fujian, formerly romanised as Fukien or Foukien, is a province on the southeast coast of mainland China. Fujian is bordered by Zhejiang to the north, Jiangxi to the west, and Guangdong to the south. Taiwan lies to the east, across the Taiwan Strait. The name Fujian came from the combination of Fuzhou and Jianzhou two cities in Fujian, during the Tang Dynasty. With a Han majority, it is one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse provinces in China. Most of Fujian is administered by the People's Republic of China. However, the archipelagos of Kinmen, Matsu, and Liuchu are under the control of the Republic of China. Thus, there are two provinces: the Fujian Province administered by the People's Republic of China and the Fujian Province of the Republic of China.
