This is China...
Yes and no- you might say that if you were Chinese, but you most likely would not say that if you were Taiwanese. That's on the political front.
Culturally, it's also a yes and no. China/Taiwan share thousands of years of Chinese culture, but a 60+ year separation by Communism/democracy (at a broad level). Besides the political aspect, there's a huge cultural difference in the ideologies.
There's certainly corruption and crime on both sides of the South China Sea. But I wouldn't write off an order just because it comes from Taiwan. Certainly do your normal due diligence in deciding whether to process the order or not.
