Tourist safety behind croyabo亚博体育下载楼凤moveview of Taipei

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

yabo亚博体育下载楼凤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:

yabo亚博体育下载楼凤女神会所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

yabo亚博体育下载楼凤女神会所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

yabo亚博体育下载楼凤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.yabo亚博体育下载楼凤女神会所

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 andyabo亚博体育下载楼凤

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

yabo亚博体育下载楼凤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 pyabo亚博体育下载楼凤女神会所

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

yabo亚博体育下载楼凤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 interferiyabo亚博体育下载楼凤女神会所

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

Architectural experts who have gained a hands-on unders

standing of the pros and cons of rural reconstruction through their work were also invited to hold a dialogue with the writers, which resonated so strongly with the

villagers that some of them surrounded the speakers afterward hoping to expand their discussions.

He Wei, assistant professor at the school of architecture at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, w

ho has been leading several projects in the countryside, thinks a major problem is the conflicting demands between the elite class

of city dwellers, who tend to seek spiritual comfort in village life, and the villagers themselves who naturally want to i

mprove their quality of life. However, many of the rural traditions have been lost during the process.

“Once they leave the countryside, it’s hard for people to come back and settle, both in person and spiritually,” he says.
