Tourist safety behind cro上海楼凤moveview of Taipei

Given the current climate of cross-Straits relations, the Chinese mainla

上海楼凤nd suspended issuing individual travel permits for Taiwan on Thursday. What do

es the move suggest? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Yao Yuxin. Excerpts follow:

上海楼凤女神会所DPP should stop splittist activities

Taiwan witnessed rapid growth in tourist arrivals from the mai

nland in the eight years before Tsai Ing-wen became the island leader in 2016.

Individual travel to Taiwan was first permitted for residents of Beijin

上海楼凤女神会所g, Shanghai and Xiamen, Fujian province, in 2011 when cross-Straits relations were goo

d thanks partly to Ma Ying-jeou being the Taiwan leader. The arrangement was extended to 47 mainland cities over the fol

上海楼凤lowing three years. As a result, mainland tourist arrivals in Taiwan peaked at more than 4 million in 2015.

But tourist arrivals began dropping after Tsai took office, because she and her Democratic Progressive Party refused to rec

ognize the 1992 Consensus that there is only one China, which soured cross-Straits relations.上海楼凤女神会所

Mainland visitors-a large number of whom are individual travelers-account for ab

out a quarter of Taiwan’s total tourist arrivals, so the new curbs could rattle the island’s tourism industry and上海楼凤

hurt the broader economy. If the situation continues to worsen, the system for mai

上海楼凤nland tourists to apply for group travel to the island might also be affected in the foreseeable future.

But ignoring the mainland’s huge contribution to the island’s tou

rism sector prosperity and economic growth, Tsai and the DPP have more brazenly p上海楼凤女神会所

ushed forward their “Taiwan independence” agenda without thinking that, by fur

上海楼凤ther straining cross-Straits relations, they are compromising the well-being of Taiwan compatriots.

Besides, without any evidence to prove their outrageous claim, Tsai

and her fellow DPP leaders accused the mainland of sending spies and interferi上海楼凤女神会所

ng in the local elections last year, which put the safety of mainland individual travelers at risk.

Beijing’s, as both the Foreign Ministry and official media are vowing, is to “fight till the end” in

that case. Such a scenario would be lose-lose, as it would mean diminishing returns for both.

Global investors are pinning their hopes on the upcoming meeting producing a breakthrough in the c

urrent impasse. The yet-to-be-confirmed report that China and the United States have reached a t

entative agreement to avert the threatened tariffs helped Asian stock markets turn higher on Thursday.

If some kind of truce cake has indeed been baked, as some assume, it certainly would be something worth celebrating.

After all, tense as they are, the trade frictions are the fus

e of a broader and more dangerous standoff that may not only pit the world’s two largest eco

nomies against each other, but also lead to the fragmentation of the global market and the international community.

hina to realize full electronic toll coverage by year-end

More than 90 percent of vehicles on expressways in China should

be able to use the electronic toll collection (ETC) system by year-end, according to the Na

tional Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Transport.

The move is part of an effort to reach the goal of essentially re

moving all tollgates in two years, as laid out in the Gov

ernment Work Report in March. The brick-and-mortar tollgates will finally be rep

laced with the virtual ETC system, partly to reduce emissions and logistics costs.

In an action plan released on Tuesday, the commission and

ministry outlined a timetable for establishing the ETC syst

em, which allows drivers to pass electronic tollgates on expressways without stopping.

on to look into the future amid urban life, and the other is to look back

on rural history – it’s our past,” he says, adding that this contradiction – resisting urban

ization while at the same time embracing progress – has driven the emergence of modern thought and di

scourse, which has become the internal motivation for change in art, literature and philosophy.

Ethnic Tibetan writer A Lai, famous for his novel Settling Dust, which was also published und

er the title Red Poppies, says many of the writers today still depict rural life as they imagine it, rather than ob

serving and reflecting on it by honestly facing the challenges posed by globalization.

“We should be aware that many of the problems facing Chinese farmers and villagers today are universal,” he says.

No approaches to regional issues should resort to mili

tary blocs, nor should they undermine the interests of others,” Wei said.

He called out the United States for its military support to Taiwan and naval operations in the

South China Sea, saying they have undermined China’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity.

China resolutely follows the path of peaceful development and this commitment is ensh

rined in the constitutions of both the Communist Party of China and the People’s Republic of

China, Wei said. “If this is not convincing enough for some people, nothing will be.”

Moreover, China adopts a military strategy of “active defense”, with emphasis on self-defe

nse and post-strike response. The strategy’s purpose is entirely for self-defense and coping with se

curity threats using a reasonable and appropriate defense expenditure, he added.

For a long period of time, various nations’ normal passage and flight in the region have never bee
