Overview: Taiwan


The director of China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, Zhang Zhijun, declared that that the People’s Republic would announce no less than 31 measures in August 2013 designed to ‘cultivate cross-strait interactions.’ Among the six measures that he disclosed was that Taiwanese would be given access to 10 categories of accreditation tests on the mainland, as well as the establishment of 10 ‘cross-strait cultural exchange centres’ on the mainland. Additionally, and rather wordily, the mainland's Supreme People's Court would grant legal status to civil arbitration agreements formulated by arbitration committees in Taiwan. These initiatives appeared to be the latest attempt to promote people-to-people exchanges across the Taiwan Strait amid continued deep-rooted distrust. As so often the case at high level meetings of this sort, there was an inevitable dose of vague promises. Thus, speaking on behalf of President Xi, the chairman of the Chinese Political People's Consultative Conference, Yu Zhengsheng announced that the mainland ‘would strive towards consolidating peaceful mainland-Taiwan ties, while welcoming former pro-independence Taiwanese to visit the mainland. Our new leadership will continue to follow correct policies and dedicate itself to consolidating the political, economic, cultural and social foundations for the peaceful development of cross-strait relations.’
