Jul 06, 2018 Legal Comments Off on Former KMT chair leads youth delegation to cross-strait forum in China
Taipei, Former opposition Kuomintang chairperson Hung Hsiu-chu (???) headed a delegation of 200 Taiwanese youths that left for China Friday, to attend the first cross-strait youth development forum in the country's eastern city of Hangzhou Sunday.
The participants were selected through the Chinese Qingyan Peace Education Foundation headed by Hung.
The younger generation are the future of the country, but right now young people in Taiwan are disillusioned, Hung said.
It is hoped the forum will provide opportunities for young people from Taiwan and China to better understand each other and work together, she said.
Asked about former KMT Chairman Lien Chan's (??) planned meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping (???) during a visit to Beijing that starts on July 12, Hung said recently KMT members have been actively visiting China in an attempt to help resolve the current cross-strait impasse.
During this trip, she will meet mainly young people and hopes to use the opportunity to promote mutual understanding, Hung said, adding that engaging in more communication and joint events is always good for cross-strait relations.
As to whether she will meet with China's Taiwan Affairs Office Director Liu Jieyi (???), Hung said she believes he will attend the forum and if a suitable opportunity arises, she will talk to him about Taiwan's recent overproduction of agricultural products such as pineapples and dragon fruit.
