The Taiwanese Mainland Affairs Council said Tuesday it would allow multinationals to bring employees from the mainland for meetings in Taiwan, the South China Morning Post reported. A recent economic forum had recommended restrictions on entry of professionals from China be lifted to make it easier for multinationals to operate in Taiwan. Right now, the limit of professionals visiting as a group is 30. Microsoft could be the first multinational to benefit from the new rules since it plans to hold a regional meeting in Taiwan that would require entry of up to 300 employees from mainland China. The government of Taiwan is also preparing to ease the way for mainland tourists this year, possibly by November.
