Shanghai Party Secretary Li Qiang met Wu Po-hsiung, honorary chairman of the Kuomintang, and his delegation on Wednesday.

Li praised Wu’s unfaltering support for the 1992 Consensus, his long-term objection to the Taiwan independence movement, and his contribution to the cross-strait relations.

Li told his guests that Shanghai is working hard to build itself into “five centers” and an excellent metropolis, keep upgrading its industrial levels and core competitiveness, and serve the Yangtze River Delta region, the Yangtze River economic belt and the whole country.

Shanghai and Taiwan have extensive cooperation in trade, cultural industries, education, and grassroots management, and the city has attracted lots of investment and Taiwan compatriots.

Shanghai has always upheld the familial bonds with Taiwan and the city is willing to strengthen the cooperation in various industries and share business opportunities with the province, Li added.

Wu said the peaceful cross-strait relations will become increasingly prosperous. Many Taiwan compatriots are living, working, and studying in Shanghai. This year the Chinese mainland has introduced 31 preferential policies regarding Taiwan, and Shanghai has introduced 55 such policies.

Taiwan hopes to take advantage of the preferential policies to strengthen the cooperation in various industries with Shanghai and keep improving the wellbeing for the people in both the city and the province.

Zheng Gangmiao, minister of the United Front Work Department of the CPC Shanghai Committee, Zhuge Yujie, secretary-general of the CPC Shanghai Committee, and Weng Tiehui, vice-mayor of Shanghai, also attended the meeting.
