More than 200 Taiwan compatriots will attend a ceremony held on the mainland to pay homage to Huangdi, also known as the Yellow Emperor, on Tomb-sweeping Day which falls on April 5.

Hung Hsiu-chu, former chairperson of the Kuomintang (KMT) party, and New Party chairman Yok Mu-ming will participate in the event, along with residents from the island, An Fengshan, spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, said at a press conference on Wednesday.

The legendary emperor is considered the founder of the Chinese civilization and the ancestor of all Chinese.
