(Taiwan News) – Yang Size (楊思澤), a member of China’s Political Consultative Conference, said Monday that he had proposed a motion to invite Taiwan’s former vice president Annette Lu (呂秀蓮) for a travel to China. Residents in China’s southeastern Fujian Province at Lu’s hometown have also erected a placard to welcome Lu’s possible visit.

Chinese International Trade and Culture Association President Jimmy Shang (尚潔梅), who is familiar with cross-strait affairs, said China had intended to reach to “pro-independence members” of the Democratic Progressive Party back in 2006. However, the plan was scrapped because the DPP was in ruling at the time.

With improved relation between Taiwan and China since last May, China recently considered reviving the plan. Through a motion filed by Yang, China looks forward to having Lu visit the communist country to strike a deeper bond with the island.

Fujian Province General Officer Lou Zhangong (盧展工) also publicly extended greeting to Lu, welcoming her to visit China as a newspaper publisher, said Shang on Wednesday.

When Shang visited the historic “Nanjing Earth Building” in Fujian early 2009, he especially paid a visit to Lu’s hometown in Tianzhong Village, which was transferred into a museum of earth building. The locals took pride in having a vice leader of Taiwan and set up a huge board to guide the tourists for visits, said Shang.
