The planned conference on Taiwan's sustainable economic growth will be postponed to July so that the government will have more time to prepare the agenda and seek opposition parties' support for the meeting, an official said earlier this week. Yeh Ming-feng (葉明峰), vice chairman of the Council for Economic Planning and Development, said the postponement was decided at a meeting of the Cabinet's special task force on economic and financial affairs held on Wednesday evening. The meeting was originally scheduled for next month, but the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) said it would not send any representatives because it didn't believe the meeting would produce any concrete results. According to Yeh, the government may choose two days between July 8 and July 10 to hold the conference aimed at revving up the country's sustainable growth.
