China and Taiwan edge closer to tourism deal – Kathrin Hille

From the Financial Times (link)

China and have edged closer to opening up cross-strait tourism with a proposal by Beijing for regulations to govern the travel of mainland residents to the island.

Yesterday’s announcement by Chinese president Hu Jintao came as part of a wide-ranging package of economic benefits handed out by the Chinese leadership to the island’s opposition as Beijing refined its increasingly successful strategy to marginalise Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive party.

Mr Hu was receiving Lien Chan, former chairman of Taiwan’s main opposition party Kuomintang, and a 400-strong delegation of Taiwanese business leaders and politicians in Beijing yesterday at the conclusion of a two-day economic forum held by the Chinese Communist party and the KMT.
