A mainland official said here Wednesday that the Second Straits Forum will be held on June 19 in southeastern Fujian Province which is adjacent to Taiwan across the sea.

The largest non-official cross-Strait forum to date designed to promote cross-Strait exchanges, will have its main venue in Xiamen, said Yang Yi, spokesman of the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office.

Yang said the forum would strengthen its role as a civilian cross-Strait exchange platform and fulfil public demand to enhance communication between people both sides of the Strait.

The forum would be jointly hosted by non-governmental organizations of both sides, he said, adding he warmly welcomed the participation of people from Taiwan.
