The Cross-Strait Economic, Trade and Culture Forum has become an important platform for exchanges and dialogues between the Communist Party of China and the Taiwan-based Kuomintang (KMT), said a spokeswoman of Taiwan Affairs Office of China's State Council at a press conference Saturday.

Fa Liqing said any possible meeting of top leaders from both Parties through the forum would depend on an appropriate environment and timing.

The sixth Cross-Strait Economic, Trade and Culture Forum will be held in south China's Guangdong Province from July 8 to 11.

Fan said the forum played a crucial role in the overall peaceful development of cross-Strait relation.

The upcoming forum will focus on cooperation in new industries and enhancing the competitiveness of both sides of the Taiwan Strait, said Fan.

Topics will include promotion of cooperation in new energies, energy-saving, environmental protection and deepening economic cooperation.

A seminar on culture and education will also be held during the four-day event.

KMT's honorary chairman Wu Poh-hsiung will head a delegation to the forum, which will be attended by more than 400 industry leaders, experts and scholars from both the mainland and Taiwan.
