ARATS chief to arrive for third review meeting

The topic on the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) will not be discussed during the summit, Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) Vice Chairperson Shih Hui-fen said Wednesday.

China’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS) Chairman Chen Deming will arrive in Taipei on November 30 for a seven-day visit, where both parties are expected to review the agreements already signed by two sides of the Taiwan Strait.

The third review meeting will be headed by Shih on the government team and ARATS Vice President Zheng Lizhong leading the Chinese delegation.

“The discussion will include a review of the 20 agreements signed to fill in any missing bits and pieces,” Shih said.

Though Chen is due to arrive in Taipei that day, he is not scheduled to attend the review meeting.

He is expected to tour other cities around Taiwan to gain better understanding of the local society and its creative industry developments.

According to Shih, Chen’s scheduled visits will encompass Keelung, Ilan, and Nantou, including Gold Museum in Ruifang District and Fort San Domingo in New Taipei’s Tamsui District.
