Taiwan shares open sharply higher

Taipei, May 4 (CNA) The Taiwan Stock Exchange's main index opened sharply higher Monday, moving up 293.03 points at 6,285.6 on a turnover of NT$19.83 billion (US$602.92 million).
The weighted price index surged 6.74 percent or 378.51 points to close at 5,992.57 last Thursday, marking the biggest single-day rise this year, following the invitation to Taiwan to attend this year's World Health Assembly as an observer, a sign of Taiwan's rapidly warming ties with China.
