TAIPEI, Taiwan — A fair designed to promote agricultural products and tourism from eight Taiwanese cities and counties governed by the opposition Kuomintang (KMT)-led pan-blue camp opened on Saturday for a three-day run at the Beijing Exhibition Center, according to the Central News Agency (CNA).
The fair includes a total of 176 booths showcasing tea, kaoliang liquor, organic rice, pork balls, sausages and other agricultural products from Taiwan’s New Taipei City, Hsinchu County, Miaoli County, Nantou County, Hualien County, Taitung County, Kinmen County and Lienchiang County.
“Although the fair is not large-scale and runs for only a short time, it signifies a beginning and won’t be the last one,” Zhang Zhijun (張志軍), director of China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, said after the opening ceremony. [FULL STORY]
