The Chinese mainland will continue to foster a favorable environment for Taiwan-funded enterprises on the mainland, a spokesperson said at a press conference Thursday.
Ma Xiaoguang, mainland spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, made the remarks while answering a question on whether the Chinese mainland was worried about the tech giant Foxconn's investment in the United States.
Ma stressed that the Chinese mainland has shown clear and consistent gestures to support Taiwan-funded enterprises to thrive on the mainland.
Taiwan businesspeople have agreed that the mainland economy is positive in the long run, and the future of Taiwan-funded enterprises on the mainland remains promising, said Ma.
Ma also pointed out that Foxconn has continuously expanded its investment on the mainland this year and the existing companies have not been affected.
On Wednesday, Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou announced a 10 billion dollar investment plan to build a LCD factory in the state of Wisconsin of the United States.
