Top negotiators to meet in Shanghai on Sept. 16: source

With a landmark trade pact expected to take effect Sunday, Taiwan's Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) Chairman Chiang Pin-kung is scheduled to meet his Chinese counterpart in Shanghai on Sept. 16, a source in China said yesterday.
Chiang is scheduled to meet Chen Yunlin, president of the Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS), immediately after arriving for a group meeting between the SEF and the ARATS, the source said. The most important issue on the agenda for the meeting will be setting up a Cross-Strait Economic Cooperation Committee based on the economic cooperation framework agreement (ECFA) that was signed on June 29, according to the source. SEF Deputy Secretary-General Ma Shao-chang, however, told reporters yesterday that no date had been set for the meeting and that Chiang and Chen would not talk about ECFA-related issues.
