Chinese mainland's Taiwan affairs official Wang Yi expressed the hope that compatriots across the Taiwan Strait will promote mutual trust and strengthen cooperation in 2010 in an article to be published in the "Relations Across Taiwan Straits" magazine.

"In the upcoming year 2010, cross-Strait relations face new hopes for development. Compatriots across the Strait should strengthen confidence, get ride of obstacles and strengthen cooperation in order to create a new situation," said Wang, director of both the CPC Central Committee's Taiwan Work Office and the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, in the article.

Wang said cross-Strait relations developed in a stable and all round manner in 2009. It has increasingly become the mainstream public opinion in Taiwan and the mutual understanding of people across the Strait to support more exchanges and cooperation and look forward to peaceful development of cross-Strait relations.

Amid the global financial crisis, the mainland issued a series of policies to help relieve the economic difficulties of the island. And people from all walks of life in the mainland lent their hands to Taiwan compatriots when Typhoon Morakot hit the island, said the article.

Wang said compatriots across the Strait are also expected to broaden cultural exchanges and deepen feelings.
