BEIJING - Senior Taiwan's official Wu Den-yih is welcome to attend early April's Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) on invitation as an advisor to a Taiwan-based foundation, a mainland spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Mainland authorities would provide appropriate assistance to Wu Den-yih, who would participate in the forum as the top advisor of the Cross-Straits Common Market Foundation, Fan Liqing, spokeswoman of the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, said at a press conference.

Activities are currently being arranged for the island's delegation to the BFA, said Fan.
