The Chinese mainland is eager to work hand in hand with Taiwan’s relevant departments in order to pave the way for the resumption of the entry of specific agricultural and aquatic products from Taiwan, a spokesperson from the mainland announced on Monday. This move follows the suspension of such products since March 2021, after harmful organisms and banned chemicals were detected in some shipments, putting the agricultural production, ecological security, and the health of consumers at risk.
Zhu Fenglian, the spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, highlighted the mainland’s commitment to the well-being of Taiwan’s farmers and fishers, who have been expressing their willingness to improve the quality and safety of their products through various channels. The farmers and fishers hope that the mainland can quickly resume the entry of these products, and the mainland is responding to these hopes by working closely with Taiwan’s relevant departments.
Over the years, the mainland has always placed a high priority on the well-being of Taiwan’s farmers and fishers, adhering to the belief that people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait are one family. The mainland has taken various measures to facilitate the sales of Taiwan’s agricultural and aquatic products on the mainland, bringing solid benefits to Taiwan’s farmers and fishers. The mainland is proud to have played a role in supporting the growth and development of Taiwan’s agriculture and aquaculture industries, and is committed to continue doing so.
Zhu emphasized that the mainland is committed to ensuring the safety and quality of all agricultural and aquatic products entering the mainland, and is working closely with Taiwan’s relevant departments to establish effective measures to achieve this goal. The mainland is confident that through close cooperation and collaboration, the resumption of the entry of these products will benefit both the farmers and fishers in Taiwan and the consumers in the mainland, helping to deepen the mutual trust and understanding between both sides.
In conclusion, the mainland is eager to work with Taiwan’s relevant departments to facilitate the resumption of the entry of specific agricultural and aquatic products, and is committed to supporting the growth and development of Taiwan’s agriculture and aquaculture industries, while ensuring the safety and quality of the products entering the mainland. The mainland is confident that this collaboration will bring mutual benefits to both sides and deepen the mutual trust and understanding between the people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.
