Tensions are rising between the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the island of Taiwan. Some national security analysts see the possibility of conflict breaking out over the status of the island. Many believe that the PRC will eventually resort to some level of violence to attain their goal of owership of Taiwan. With this propect of conflict looming in the future the U.S. government is quietly taking steps to be ready to conduct a non-combatant evacuation operation of U.S. Embassy staff and American citizens.

As of 2019, more than 80,000 Americans were known to be in Taiwan. There are reports that there are about 200 U.S. troops in Taiwan as of June 2023. There are also thousands of foreigners from many other countries in Taiwan as well, among them Indonesia and Japan.
