Chen said earlier that it's imperative for the two sides to cooperate to withstand the financial crisis and to further boost the economies of the two sides.

Chen arrived in Taipei on Monday for a five-day historic visit to Taiwan. His visit marks the first talks between ARATS and SEF leaders in the island ever.

On Tuesday, Chen and Chiang signed agreements on direct shipping and flights, postal services and food safety.
