Fourth cross-strait talks set for December in Taichung

TAICHUNG, Taiwan -- A fourth round of talks between the chief cross-Taiwan Strait negotiators of Taiwan and China will be held in December in the central city of Taichung, the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) announced Wednesday.

Taipei-based Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) Chairman Chiang Pin-kung and China-based Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS) President Chen Yunlin last met in Nanjing in April, when they signed three agreements on the launch of regular cross-strait passenger flights, mutual judicial assistance and financial cooperation, as well as releasing a joint statement on a proposal to open Taiwan to Chinese investment.

The date and venue for the next Chiang-Chen talks were decided upon in a meeting held in Hangzhou a day earlier between SEF Vice Chairman Kao Koong-lian and his ARATS counterpart Zheng Lizhong, according to MAC Vice Chairman Liu Te-shun.

In their upcoming meeting, the two officials are expected to sign four agreements regarding fishing labor cooperation, agricultural quarantine inspection, standards, inspection and certification for industrial products, and the avoidance of double taxation, Liu said.

Related officials from the two sides will meet soon to thresh out the details to be covered by the agreements, Liu added.

The SEF and ARATS are semi-official intermediary bodies set up by Taiwan and China, respectively, to deal with cross-strait affairs and negotiations in the absence of official ties between the two sides.
