Cross-strait youth exchanges help promote mutual understanding. That was a view expressed at the 2017 Taiwanese student workshop hosted by the Straits Exchange Foundation. The workshop helps prepare Taiwanese students taking up studies at universities in China.
Several students currently studying in China shared their experience at the event. Cheng Chung-chie, a graduate student at Peking University, said exchanges between young people across the Taiwan Strait are always helpful for mutual understanding.
