A forum on cross-Straits charity was held in Xiamen on June 15, aimed at boosting the cooperation on the sector of social work and public welfare between the Chinese mainland and Taiwan.

Part of the ongoing Straits Forum, the event was the first of its kind in the history of the forum. The gathering attracted more than 300 participants from social organizations, community service agencies and enterprises on both sides of the Straits.

"As people's livelihoods are always high on the agenda of governments on the two sides, the cooperation in carrying out charity projects and activities could help enhance the cross-Straits relations to a new level," Ye Kedong, deputy director of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said at the opening ceremony of the forum.
