Taipei, May 5 (CNA) Taiwan would like to see its businesspeople invest in China’s “one belt, one road” strategy as long as China does not attach any political conditions to their participation, a leading China policy official said Tuesday.
Hsia Li-yan, head of the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC), made the remarks during an interview in which he was asked to comment on media reports that Chinese President Xi Jinping had promised to give Taiwanese investors “priority” chances to take part in his grand economic strategy.
Xi offered this sign of goodwill to Eric Chu, chairman of Taiwan’s ruling Kuomintang, who returned from a visit to Shanghai and Beijing earlier that day. [FULL STORY]
