Experts on both sides of the Taiwan Strait welcome the agreements to improve relations signed by the two main negotiating bodies from the Chinese mainland and Taiwan.
The mainland’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS) president, Chen Yunlin, seen here in this splendid picture, and the Taiwan-based Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) chairman, Chiang Pin-kung, have signed four agreements on food safety, direct shipping and flights, and mail services.
Yang Lixian, deputy secretary-general of the National Taiwan Studies Society, called the agreements ‘big breakthroughs’, saying the dreams long cherished by people on both sides would soon come true.
She believed the agreements would promote exchanges, and trade and economic cooperation, and facilitate logistics and capital flow.
She said the agreements benefited Taiwan especially, by improving economic competitiveness, drawing foreign investment and enhancing public confidence.
