BEIJING — Premier Li Keqiang said on March 15 the Chinese mainland intends to introduce more preferential policies for Taiwan compatriots.
It is to ensure that they will enjoy the same treatment as the mainland people when they work, study, live and do business on the mainland, Premier Li told a press conference following the conclusion of the annual national legislative session.
The mainland has previously introduced 31 measures for promoting cross-Straits economic and cultural exchanges, which must be fully delivered, and new measures should be introduced as well, he noted.
“When people on both sides of the Straits enjoy the same development opportunities and come closer to each other, the cross-Straits relationship will grow stronger and make more solid progress,” Premier Li said.
He reiterated that the mainland will continue to adhere to the one-China principle and the 1992 Consensus, oppose “Taiwan independence”, and promote the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations and peaceful reunification of the motherland.
