BEIJING, June 13 (Xinhua) -- The Taiwan business community is widely anticipating strengthened industrial cooperation across the Taiwan Strait, according to a Taiwan business delegation during a visit to the Chinese mainland.

A delegation of the Third Wednesday Club visited Beijing, Tianjin and Xiong'an New Area in Hebei Province, from Monday to Thursday. The delegation was led by Lin Por-fong, chairman of the club.

Song Tao, head of both the Taiwan Work Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, met with the delegation in Beijing on Tuesday.

Song stressed that recognizing the one-China principle and acknowledging the fact that both sides of the Strait belong to one country and the same Chinese nation are the precondition of maintaining peace and stability across the Strait. They also constitute the basis for deepening cross-Strait exchanges and cooperation and provide guarantee for improving the wellbeing of Taiwan compatriots.

Song said the mainland will as always show respect and care for Taiwan compatriots and deliver benefits to them.

Preferential policies for Taiwan compatriots and enterprises will be improved to deepen cross-Strait integrated development in various fields, and stronger measures will be rolled out to help Taiwan youth pursue personal development on the mainland, Song added.

Lin expressed support for the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations and called for promoting economic, trade, cultural and people-to-people exchanges across the Strait on the political basis of the 1992 Consensus.

"The Taiwan business community has broad expectations for strengthening cross-Strait industrial cooperation, and we will stay confident in seeking development on the mainland," said Lin.

During their visits in Tianjin and Xiong'an, the delegation had in-depth communications with representatives from local high-tech and industrial parks, pilot free trade zone and Taiwan-funded enterprises on promoting cross-Strait innovation cooperation, deepening industrial integrated development and helping Taiwan-funded enterprises participate in local development.

Enterprises on both sides of the Strait can have more cooperation in the fields of economy, trade and sci-tech innovation, Lin said, adding that member companies of the club look forward to deepening cross-Strait industrial cooperation and delivering mutual benefit and win-win results.

Founded in 1999, the Third Wednesday Club has been committed to cross-Strait industrial exchanges and cooperation. Currently, it has 79 business conglomerates from Taiwan as its regular members. Enditem
