Cross-strait agreement on medical cooperation

NEGOTIATORS from the Chinese mainland and Taiwan said yesterday that the two sides should strengthen cooperation in medical care.

"The goal of economic development is to improve the living standards of people. The mainland and Taiwan should also strengthen medical cooperation to benefit people from both sides," said Chiang Pin-kung, chairman of the Taiwan-based Strait Exchange Foundation, when visiting the BenQ Hospital in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province.

The BenQ Hospital is supported by the Taiwan-based AU Optronics Corporation.

Chen Yunlin, president of the mainland-based Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait, said the two sides had their respective medical advantages and should work together to learn from each other.

The two bodies signed agreements in Nanjing on Sunday on regular flights, and boosting cooperation in finance and criminal matters. Chiang said the talks were "the most important" in the past 60 years.

"History will remember the spring of 2009 and the city of Nanjing. History will not stop because of objectors, and a tide will not change its course because some people are blocking the way," said Chen at a farewell ceremony for Chiang and the Taiwan delegation.

After leaving Nanjing, Chiang is to visit the cities of Yangzhou and Suzhou.
