In Taiwan the Minister of Transportation and Communications has said he hopes the number of tourists coming to Taiwan from the mainland will increase through more direct flights and flight routes across the Taiwan Strait.
Mao declined to elaborate on how many more tourists he hopes to see, but he was quoted as saying in a recent radio interview that the hopes the number will increase to 1,000 per day.
Taiwan has a cap of 3,000 tourist arrivals from the mainland per day, but the actual arriving numbers have fallen far short of expectations.
Mao Chi-kuo noted that the mainland and Taiwan will conduct a second round of talks next month and expressed hope that the number of weekend flights can be increased from the current 18, along with an increase in flight destinations and routes.
