More than 200 youth representatives from the Chinese mainland and Taiwan gathered in Beijing on Monday, marking the 20th anniversary of the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation (CSCLF) holding cross-Strait youth activities.
CSCLF Chairman Wang Jiarui met with event organizers and youth representatives, and called on young people to firmly uphold the one China policy, seek cross-Strait development, and contribute to national prosperity and revival, and the improvement of people's well-being.
He also noted that youth from across the Strait should carry forward traditional Chinese culture and the great spirit of the times, and promote people-to-people connection and socio-economic development.
"We welcome Taiwan youth to study and seek jobs on the mainland. We are willing to build more platforms for entrepreneurship and innovation with institutions from Taiwan," said Wang.
More than 7,000 young people from both sides of the Taiwan Strait have attended youth activities held by the CSCLF over the past 20 years.
