Tourist safety behind cro上海楼凤moveview of Taipei

Given the current climate of cross-Straits relations, the Chinese mainla

上海楼凤nd suspended issuing individual travel permits for Taiwan on Thursday. What do

es the move suggest? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Yao Yuxin. Excerpts follow:

上海楼凤女神会所DPP should stop splittist activities

Taiwan witnessed rapid growth in tourist arrivals from the mai

nland in the eight years before Tsai Ing-wen became the island leader in 2016.

Individual travel to Taiwan was first permitted for residents of Beijin

上海楼凤女神会所g, Shanghai and Xiamen, Fujian province, in 2011 when cross-Straits relations were goo

d thanks partly to Ma Ying-jeou being the Taiwan leader. The arrangement was extended to 47 mainland cities over the fol

上海楼凤lowing three years. As a result, mainland tourist arrivals in Taiwan peaked at more than 4 million in 2015.

But tourist arrivals began dropping after Tsai took office, because she and her Democratic Progressive Party refused to rec

ognize the 1992 Consensus that there is only one China, which soured cross-Straits relations.上海楼凤女神会所

Mainland visitors-a large number of whom are individual travelers-account for ab

out a quarter of Taiwan’s total tourist arrivals, so the new curbs could rattle the island’s tourism industry and上海楼凤

hurt the broader economy. If the situation continues to worsen, the system for mai

上海楼凤nland tourists to apply for group travel to the island might also be affected in the foreseeable future.

But ignoring the mainland’s huge contribution to the island’s tou

rism sector prosperity and economic growth, Tsai and the DPP have more brazenly p上海楼凤女神会所

ushed forward their “Taiwan independence” agenda without thinking that, by fur

上海楼凤ther straining cross-Straits relations, they are compromising the well-being of Taiwan compatriots.

Besides, without any evidence to prove their outrageous claim, Tsai

and her fellow DPP leaders accused the mainland of sending spies and interferi上海楼凤女神会所

ng in the local elections last year, which put the safety of mainland individual travelers at risk.

Industry insiders said many challenges still remain for related businesses, including a lack of supervision and licenses.

上海楼凤品茶微信Currently, processing garbage in China requires a license, which includes diff

erent categories such as kitchen, domestic, and construction waste removal.

“Also, people are still passive participants,” said Yang Guisheng, a senior partner at leading law firm Den上海楼凤

tons. “While people are still at an early stage of habit cultivation, the government plays an important guiding role.”

He said that related rules and regulations should be formed gradually during this process.

上海楼凤品茶微信”With rules being set, problems related to licenses, land use and whether work should

be undertaken by State-owned companies or private ones can all be solved,” he said.

What made the neighborhood different from the thousands of other spindly-tree subdivisions across America was that even the ne’er-do-wells tended to be

Both overseas and domestic climbers must apply as part of a team, not personally, he said.

Tibet installed a new ladder in a section of the climbing route in 2017, and provided climb

Cleanup efforts on the mountain involve both environmental considerations and climbing sa

fety. The work has become routine, said Tashi Gyatso, the deputy secretary of the regional government.

Over 80 percent believed internship experience on the

e mainland will improve their competitiveness, and most expected to learn more of the vocational culture and work environment.

The HKUYA Student Exchange Network, an organization unde

r the Hong Kong United Youth Association, launched this year’s summer internship program on Wednesday.

More than 200 Hong Kong college students will go to Beijing, Shanghai, Harbin and Dalian to take part in a six-week

program. They will work in government organs, State-owned enterprises, cultural and business institutions.

Stanley Choi Tak Shing, honorary chairman of the student exchange network, said he hoped students would learn

more about the country’s development through the internship, especially those who want to work on the mainland.

A student who will work in the Mei Lanfang Theater in Beijing this summer vacation said she wanted to work in the art indu

stry after graduation, and expected to learn more about the industry through the internship.
