A reporter at the meeting asked that Director Song Tao recently held a discussion with Taiwan businessmen and young people in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province, and when responding to the benefits of reunification, he said that as long as the one-China principle is underneath, Taiwan compatriots can discuss whatever they want to gain. How to understand this? Please elaborate further on the benefits that national reunification will bring to Taiwan.

On the premise of ensuring national sovereignty, security and development interests, the social system and way of life of Taiwan compatriots will be fully respected, and their private property, religious beliefs and legitimate rights and interests will be fully protected.
After reunification, cross-strait economic cooperation has been institutionalized and institutionalized, with the mainland market as the vast hinterland, Taiwan's economic development space is larger, competitiveness is stronger, the industrial chain and supply chain are more stable and smooth, and the vitality of innovation is more vibrant. Many problems that have long plagued Taiwan's development and improvement of people's livelihood, especially water shortages, lack of electricity and other livelihood problems, can be solved in the integrated development of the two sides of the strait.

For the sake of national righteousness, national future, and self-interest and well-being, compatriots on both sides of the strait should unite as one and actively participate in the just cause of promoting the peaceful reunification of the motherland.
