  In the twelve years since the Straits Forum has been held, it has become a carnival of people-to-people exchanges with compatriots on both sides of the strait, and cooperation and win-win cooperation. I think the exchanges still cannot be stopped. The angle of cooperation can be deeper.

  [Explanation] This forum comprehensively considers the actual situation of the prevention and control of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, carefully designing the content and format, closely following the current anti-epidemic hotspots, adding new topics such as health and epidemic prevention, orderly resumption of work and production, and integrating with compatriots on both sides of the strait to fight the epidemic and help each other , A touching story of overcoming difficulties, and a number of events were held in a combination of "online and offline".

It involves four major exchanges: youth, grassroots, culture and economy.

  I think the Straits Forum is like a platform, which is to provide us with a space for communication, that is, to get to know each other. There will be a lot of population base here, so there must be more opportunities than Taiwan.

  [Explanation] On the basis of further implementing the "31" and "26" measures to benefit Taiwan compatriots, the mainland side launched "11 measures" in May this year to help Taiwanese businessmen and Taiwanese enterprises in the mainland and provide more The development opportunity of the company has won widespread praise.

  [Concurrent] Taiwanese guest Zeng Guanying

  We live very well here. Cross-strait exchanges are the general trend of integration and development. This is unstoppable. Although it may be difficult for us to communicate with the current epidemic situation, I believe that with the delay of time, it will definitely get better and better. .

  [Explanation] Outside the forum on that day, young people can be seen from time to time.

Many young people from Taiwan participated actively to share their stories.

These Taiwanese youths who have dreamed of crossing the sea have also used their stories to encourage more Taiwanese youths to come to the mainland to find employment and entrepreneurship.

  In fact, it does not exist to say how difficult it is for me to develop here. In fact, it is not. On the contrary, here is the continuous acceptance and a great benefit for our Taiwan youths. Therefore, I attach great importance to this aspect and I support it. One piece, so I chose this side.

  Whether in Fujian or other provinces, there are many of us like this, and we have been working hard, so if you want to come here to give full play to your strengths, or to expand your career here, don’t have too much If you think more, you can come and see more first, so we actually want to encourage you to come and see first, and then come here to take root if we have the opportunity.
