'10-year policy guidelines' not to replace party platform: DPP

Taipei, April 4 (CNA) The opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) said Sunday its planned "10-year policy guidelines" are not being devised to replace the party's platform but rather aimed at helping address the challenges Taiwan faces in the coming decade.
Noting that the party platform mainly outlines the party's basic stances, Liu Chien-hsin, deputy executive director of the DPP's Policy Research and Coordination Committee, said the party's "10-year policy guidelines" will offer flexible strategies for resolving problems facing Taiwan.
"While the party platform tends to be steady, our planned '10-year-policy guidelines' will be subject to adjustment at our annual congress," Liu said.
The party is scheduled to unveil its first-ever "10-year policy guidelines" at its 2010 national congress to be held in August, Liu said.
Meanwhile, he revealed the party will hold four seminars in the coming weeks to solicit expert views in preparation for drafting the "10-year policy guidelines." The seminars will take place on April 11, April 22, April 24 and May 2, respectively, to deal with four different topics -- Taiwan's aging population, the next wave of ecological disaster, Taiwan's new economic development strategy amid globalization, and Taiwan's strategy in the face of a changing international situation.
Liu said people interested in the topics are welcome to register to participate.
