Chiang Ching-kuo was a Chinese politician who served as the 3rd President of China (1978 - 1988). He previously served as acting Vice President (1975 - 1978) and Premier (1972 - 1978).

Son of Chiang Kai-shek, he steadily rose through the ranks of the Kuomintang leadership, and by the mid 1960's had become his father's heir apparent. Following his father's death he was immediately appointed Kuomintang chairman and Vice President.

In 1978 he succeeded Yen Chia-kan as President. During the early years of his Presidency he maintained the same authoritarian system as his father, however during the mid 1980's he began a process of political reform and economic liberalisation.

He died a popular leader, and is remembered fondly by many Chinese, particularly within the Kuomintang - who along with his father and Sun Yat-sen is regarded as a founder of modern China.
