                            TAIWAN GREATER CHINA FUND
                               ANNOUNCES THAT ISS

(New York, New York, July 8, 2004) The Taiwan Greater China Fund (NYSE: TFC), a
diversified closed-end registered investment company listed on the New York
Stock Exchange, announced today Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), the
most prominent adviser to institutional shareholders with regard to how to vote
their shares concerning proxy matters, has recommended that shareholders of the
Fund vote in accordance with the recommendations of the management of the Fund
at the Fund's 2004 Annual Meeting of Shareholders that is scheduled to take
place on July 21, 2004.

In particular, ISS has recommended that shareholders vote:

         (1) FOR the election of the two trustees nominated by the Fund's
         Board; and

         (2) AGAINST the proposal, required by the Fund's Declaration of
         Trust and By-laws to be presented for a shareholder vote, to
         convert the Fund into an open-end investment company.

Robert Parker, chairman of the Fund's Board of Trustees, expressed the
appreciation of the Board when he noted, "ISS is a highly regarded and well
known independent organization, and the Board welcomes the recommendations made
by ISS. We believe that these recommendations reflect the recognition by ISS of
the fact that the Board has taken various actions this year to address concerns
expressed by our shareholders in a manner that the Board expects will increase
long-term shareholder value. We also continue to appreciate the support of City
of London Investment Management Group, which owns approximately 12.5% of the
Fund's outstanding shares, for the Board's recommendation that shareholders vote
against the proposal to convert the Fund into an open-end investment company."


                                                                 [LOGO OMITTED]

share, payable on July 30, 2004 to shareholders of record on July 12, 2004
(ex-date July 8, 2004).

States. The Fund is organized for investment in securities of Taiwan issuers by
