Taiwan Quick Take: Lu urges improved relations

CNA

Vice President Annette Lu (呂秀蓮) yesterday proposed that the country seek to improve cross-strait relations in the face of the China's rise. Addressing a meeting of the Taiwan Heart group, Lu said the country has made significant progress in terms of its foreign exchange reserves, national income and international competitiveness under the leadership of the Democratic Progressive Party. Although China still lags far behind Taiwan in its development in almost all fields, it has been trying hard to catch up in recent years, she said. Taiwan should not continue to paint an ugly image of China or turn a blind eye to it like it has in the past, she said, but instead adopt a new mindset and seek to resolve the hostility between the two sides. She also said Taiwan should not pin all its hopes on China.
