Despite differences in the political, social, and economic systems of the two regions, the process of modernization has challenged traditional cultural norms in both. At the same time, the significant differences in this process respectively shape perceptions of tradition in the two regions to the extent that the notion of Chinese tradition also differs in Taiwan and on the mainland. In fact, tradition itself is often reconstructed retrospectively for the sake of modernization."" ;
