Ma defends better mainland ties

TAIWAN leader Ma Ying-jeou says improving mainland-Taiwan relations and building cross-straits peace will be a priority for the island in the next few years.

Ma made the remark at a press conference in Taipei yesterday to mark his one year in office.

He said Taiwan lost eight years in the development of cross-strait relations during ex-leader Chen Shui-bian's administration and that is why the authority put relations back on the right track in his first year in office.

Ma said agreements so far achieved are all beneficial to Taiwan. He welcomed Beijing's new policy of encouraging enterprises to invest in the island, saying Taiwan is happy to see all policies that would benefit cross-strait economic and trade development.
