By Zoila Palma-Gonzalez: A digital media press group exploring Taiwan’s political and economic development met today with Deputy Minister, Chui Cheng Chiu, of Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council.
The Mainland Affairs Council is a cabinet level administrative agency under the Executive Yuan.
The office is charged with planning, developing, and implementing policies between Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China .
Chen told the group that the council was founded in 1991 when Taiwan and China began to interact with each other.
Chen explained that the Taiwan- China relations is critical to the stability in the Asia-Pacific region.
” Taiwan society and Government will not give up its effort to be a part of international bodies,” Chen said.
Chen asserted that the issue with China can only be solved through communication and dialogue.
Taiwan maintains that it has never been a part of the People’s Republic of China and from public polls taken, 80% of Taiwanese residents agree to maintain the status quo of an independent and democratic Taiwan.
Though Taiwan is not allowed to participate in United Nations events, it maintains diplomatic relations with 17 of 193 member states and continues in its efforts to be recognized and allowed to participate in UN events.
Last month, the World Health Assembly was held in Geneva; Switzerland and Belize’s representative, Dr. Marvin Manzanero in his address called for Taiwan’s inclusion citing that many countries, including Belize, can learn from Taiwan, a pioneer in universal health coverage.
In addition, Chen thanked all of Taiwan’s diplomatic allies for their continued support.
