Cai Xiao (Chinese: 蔡嘯; Wade–Giles: Ts'ai Hsiao; 1919–1990) was a Taiwan-born Chinese military officer and politician.
Born in Tainan when Taiwan was under Japanese rule, Cai moved to China and joined the New Fourth Army in 1937. Two years later, he became a formal member of the Communist Party of China. In May 1946, the CPC established the Taiwan Provincial Work Committee. Cai Xiao worked under the commission's secretary-general zh (Cai Xiaoqian), training others in political warfare. In November 1949, Cai established the Taiwan Cadre Training Regiment under the 9th Corps of the People's Liberation Army's (PLA) Third Field Army. Later, he was assigned to train members of the PLA Air Force. Cai was jailed for nine years in the midst of the Cultural Revolution. Upon his political rehabilitation, Cai worked for the PLA General Political Department and General Logistics Department, becoming the GPD's deputy director in 1975. From 1973 to 1982, he served on the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China. After retiring from the military, Cai succeeded Xie Xuehong as chairman of the Taiwan Democratic Self-Government League (Taimeng), serving from 1979 to 1983.
