Taipei, Sept. 2 (CNA) The government supports interaction between people from
Taiwan and China, as it will help maintain peaceful cross-Taiwan Strait relations, Presidential Office Spokesman Sidney Lin (林鶴明) said Saturday.
Lin noted Taiwan’s General Association of Chinese Culture (GACC) will be attending the annual 2017 City-to-City Cultural Exchange Conference in Hong Kong this December to continue to promote cultural exchanges amongst the four cities of Taipei, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.
