TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwan’s top China policy official on Sunday called on Beijing not to further limit the


number of Chinese tourists permitted to visit Taiwan and to allow opportunities for greater interaction, communication and friendship between the people on both sides.

On its end, the Taiwan government will seek to attract more visitors, including independent Chinese tourists, by rolling out more extensive travel packages and improving the quality of its tourism services, said Chang Hsiao-yueh (張小月), chief of the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC).

Chang made the comments on the sidelines of a Lunar New Year celebration for Taiwanese businesses operating in China, after the Travel Agent Association of Taiwan (TAAT) released data that showed a record low daily number of 966 applications by Chinese tourists on Feb. 2 to visit Taiwan.

She also said that the MAC was pleased to see a report in the Hong Kong media that China was considering Taiwan’s request to grant its nationals living and working in China the same civil rights as Chinese citizens.    [FULL  STORY]
