19:09, April 10, 2013

BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- A mainland spokeswoman on Wednesday called for more efforts to accelerate negotiations on follow-up issues related to the 2010 Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA).

A recent meeting between President Xi Jinping and Taiwanese politician Vincent Siew was fruitful, with both sides sharing common views on cross-strait economic cooperation, said Fan Liqing, spokeswoman for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council.

"The mainland will make timely efforts in offering equal treatment for Taiwanese companies," Fan said.

The mainland also hopes to seek advice from Taiwan in developing the cross-strait economy and deepening regional economic cooperation, Fan added.

On Monday, Xi met with Siew, honorary chairman of the Taiwan-based Cross-Straits Common Market Foundation, at the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2013.

During the meeting, Xi said Taiwanese companies investing in the Chinese mainland will be treated the same as mainland companies.
