Forum seeks closer Shanghai-Taipei cooperation

SHANGHAI and Taipei officials today signed a set of memorandums, aiming to boost cooperation in the fields of education, sanitation, healthcare and tourism. Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin is on a two-day visit to attend the annual Shanghai-Taipei City Forum with Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng. Speaking at the forum today, Han welcomed more Taiwanese companies to invest in Shanghai, promising to offer more convenience for Taiwanese citizens who live and work in the city. His Taipei counterpart Hau Lung-bin said the two cities both have upgraded their urban management level after successfully hosting Shanghai World Expo and Taipei Flora Expo last year. And he's looking forward to closer business ties between the two cities in the near future. Hau said Shanghai tourists are most welcome to visit Taipei and Taipei residents will treat Shanghai visitors with the best hospitality. Since the Taiwan authorities started a program in June to allow individual tourists from the mainland cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Xiamen to visit Taiwan, about 400 Shanghai residents have visited the island province and nearly all of them have made a stopover in Taipei.
