China’s slow but steady changes

By Tung Chen-yuan 童振源

This adjustment shows that the CCP has loosened its conditions a little.

China also welcomed a visit by former Taiwanese premier Frank Hsieh (謝長廷) shortly before this year’s party congress and gave him a grand reception. China’s Taiwan Affairs Office Minister Wang Yi (王毅) met face-to-face with Hsieh, who is a member of the DPP’s Central Standing Committee.

This indicates that China will continue it policy of maintaining contacts with the DPP following the 18th Party Congress.
