Taiwan Province compatriots will enjoy tangible benefits after reunification.

  Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, March 29th (Reporter Shang Hao, Liu Huan) Zhu Fenglian, spokesman of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said at a regular press conference on the 29th that it is a historical trend and the right way to achieve national reunification on the basis of the one-China principle. After reunification, Taiwan Province compatriots will enjoy tangible benefits.

  In response to a related question, Zhu Fenglian said that after reunification, Taiwan Province can implement a social system different from that of the mainland. On the premise of ensuring national sovereignty, security and development interests, the social system and lifestyle of Taiwan Province compatriots will be fully respected, and the private property, religious beliefs and legitimate rights and interests of Taiwan Province compatriots will be fully guaranteed.

  After reunification, the mechanism and institutionalization of cross-strait economic cooperation are more perfect. With the mainland market as the vast hinterland, Taiwan Province has more room for economic development, stronger competitiveness, more stable and smooth industrial chain supply chain, and more vibrant innovation. Many problems that have long plagued Taiwan Province’s development and improvement of people’s livelihood, especially people’s livelihood problems such as water shortage and power shortage, can be solved through cross-strait integration and development. Taiwan Province’s fiscal revenue can be used to improve people’s livelihood and do practical things, do good things and solve difficult problems for the people.

  After reunification, Taiwan Province’s cultural creativity will be fully developed. Compatriots on both sides of the strait will jointly inherit Chinese culture, carry forward the national spirit, exchange and learn from each other, and educate future generations. Taiwan Province’s regional culture will flourish in the nourishment of Chinese cultural roots.

  After reunification, Taiwan Province compatriots will have more room for international development, and they will be more erect, emboldened, safer and more dignified internationally, and share the glory of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

  Zhu Fenglian expressed the hope that more and more Taiwan Province compatriots will clearly realize that adhering to the one-China principle will improve and develop cross-strait relations and safeguard the prospect of peaceful reunification; Deviating from the one-China principle will lead to tension and turmoil in cross-strait relations and harm to the vital interests of Taiwan Province compatriots. For the sake of national justice, national future and self-interest, compatriots on both sides of the strait should unite as one and actively participate in the just cause of promoting the peaceful reunification of the motherland.

  When answering a question about the resumption of direct flights between the two sides of the strait, Zhu Fenglian expressed the hope that Taiwan would take concrete actions to implement its "plan for restoring cross-strait air passenger destinations", ensure the resumption of direct flights between the two sides of the strait as soon as possible, do practical things for direct flights between the two sides of the strait, and provide convenience for the vast number of Taiwan compatriots and Taiwanese businessmen to travel between the two sides of the strait.

  In view of the expectation of Taiwan compatriots for the early resumption of direct passenger flights by sea, Zhu Fenglian said that we attach great importance to it and have made comprehensive preparations. There are no obstacles to the resumption of normal sea passenger routes between the two sides of the Taiwan Straits. I hope that the Democratic Progressive Party authorities will listen to the voice of the people and respond positively, so as to fully resume cross-strait sea passenger routes as soon as possible.

  Zhu Fenglian said that since the beginning of the year, the mainland’s economic and social life has quickly and comprehensively returned to normal, and the enthusiasm of compatriots on both sides of the strait has been high. More and more Taiwan compatriots have come to the mainland to participate in offline exchange activities, showing four characteristics: continuous warm cultural exchanges, rich folk beliefs exchanges, diverse youth exchanges, and splendid sports and news exchanges.

  According to reports, next, in terms of economic and trade exchanges, the Taiwan Province Federation of Industries and other planned delegations will visit, and the second cross-strait entrepreneurs’ forum for high-quality development and the first cross-strait rural revitalization and common prosperity forum and other local economic and trade activities involving Taiwan are also in full swing. Guangxi, Sichuan and Chongqing will hold many cross-strait cultural exchange activities, Zhejiang, Tianjin and Hunan will hold youth exchange activities such as baseball leagues, and Shaanxi, Henan, Shandong and Shanxi will carry out folk belief exchanges.
