Mainland, Taiwan to hold talks

THE Chinese mainland and Taiwan will hold the first round of expert discussions on a proposed economic cooperation framework in Beijing tomorrow, the mainland-based Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits, or ARATS, said yesterday.

The mainland delegation, led by ARATS Executive Vice President Zheng Lizhong, will meet experts from Taiwan to discuss the proposed Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement, expected to ease cross-Strait trade and development.

Kao Kung-lian, vice chairman and secretary general of Taiwan's Straits Exchange Foundation, will lead the Taiwan delegation. Both organizations are respectively authorized by authorities on the mainland and the island to handle cross-Strait issues.

The discussions were expected to focus on the evaluation of the results and proposals of joint research by academic institutions on both sides and discuss the official name and basic structure of the economic cooperation framework.
