Why does China Airlines share the same livery as Boeing does for its paint design? Does any other carrier have this?

I wouldn't think that they would be allowed to use that livery due to some sort of patent infringement.

It was a special scheme marking a milestone I believe.

China Airlines also uses the special scheme for it Presidential Charters....

I have a pic of it on the apron here in BZE.



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

As mentioned already, I think it was a celebratory scheme for this particular aircraft. I believe that Lion Air had/has one as well:

A couple of airlines have that sort of fusion livery. "The special livery of the new aircraft symbolizes the cooperation between China Airlines and Boeing, as we work together to raise our services to a new level" (http://www.china-airlines.com/en/newsen/newsen000148.htm). Which is funny, because I remember there being some uproar about the price Boeing had CI pay for those last 4 744s.

I think Ryanair had one with that livery, too.

Aside from the R.O.C. Pres...the PM also uses it.

I think that of the very small number of countries which still recognise the Republic of China (Taiwan), most are in central America; Costa Rica is (or was) one.

Japan Air System (which merged with JAL in 2002) liked the Airbus company livery in use at the time so much they adopted it as their own with only minor changes, presumably with the agreement of Airbus.
