Taiwan Democratic Self-Government League Central Committee holds session


08:18, December 07, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- The Eighth Central Committee of the Taiwan Democratic Self-Government League, one of the eight non-communist parties in China's mainland, held its fifth plenary session on Tuesday, with a pledge to help deepen exchanges and cooperation across the Taiwan Strait.

In 2011, the first year of China's 12th Five-year Plan period (2011-2015), the league has sponsored and participated in a series of major programs concerning exchanges in personnel and other fields, said Lin Wenyi, chairwoman of the league.

Lin, who is also a vice chairwoman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, delivered a work report on behalf of the standing committee of the league's central committee.

This year, the league has made great efforts to support the development of the economically backward western areas, and played a part in promoting the Bijie Pilot Area in southwest China's Guizhou province, where a large quantity of coal and other mineral resources have been discovered in recent years, Lin said in the report.

Meanwhile, the league has tried hard to improve itself by taking the opportunities of celebrating the 90th anniversary of the founding of the ruling Communist Party of China and the 100th anniversary of the 1911 Revolution that terminated China's feudalistic period, according to Lin.

The league plans to elect new leaders next year, Lin added, urging all the league members, who are Taiwan natives living in the mainland, to work together in an effort to ensure a smooth election of the league's leadership.
