China and Taiwan to open dialogue

Go to Financial Times original
Taiwan and China are expected to move quickly to begin a new round of dialogue and economic co-operation after leaders set a surprisingly concrete agenda for talks in a landmark bilateral meeting at the weekend.

Hu Jintao, China’s president, met Vincent Siew, Taiwan’s vice-president-elect, on the sidelines of an economic forum in the southern Chinese resort town of Boao on Saturday in the highest-level encounter between the two sides since the conflict between Taiwan and China started in 1949.

According to China’s official account, Mr Hu said that under the “new situation”, China would push for the resumption of a bilateral dialogue.
