The Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Kuomintang party (KMT) said Friday
they agreed to carry out all-round economic cooperation, cement economic and
trade relations and promote the "three direct links" across the Taiwan Straits.
The two parties also agreed to take steps to increase and guarantee
investment and trade across the Straits and enhance cooperation in agriculture
and fishery sectors to facilitate the sales of Taiwan farm produce to the
mainland, according to a press communique released after the historic meeting
between leaders of the two parties Friday afternoon.
They would also work to improve the order of cross-Straits exchanges and
crack down on crime in order to establish a stable economic cooperation
mechanism and promote the discussion for establishing a cross-Straits common
market, to which priority will be given after consultation is resumed between
the two sides of the Straits.
