[photopress:air_Ma_Taiwan.jpg,full,alignright]Leading business people in Taiwan have voiced the hope that the Taiwan authorities can realize ‘three direct links’ as soon as possible when Ma Ying-jeou, seen in the center of our illustration, takes office as the new leader of the region.
Ma, the candidate representing Taiwan’s Kuomintang who won the election, has promised to expand business ties and reinstate direct transport and postal links with the Chinese mainland.
The ‘three direct links’ refer to direct trade, transport and mail services across the Taiwan Straits.
Chi Mei Corporation President Ho Jau-yang said the Taiwan authorities should let enterprises in Taiwan embrace the business opportunities in the mainland. Chairman of the E United Group Lin I-Shou said Taiwan should let mainland tourists travel to Taiwan as soon as possible.
