Overseas Chinese urged to support China's development, reunification: Jia


08:50, September 22, 2012

BEIJING, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- Top political advisor Jia Qinglin on Friday met a group of overseas Chinese origin people, urging them to support Chinese mainland's modernization and the country's peaceful reunification.

Addressing the delegation of overseas outstanding youth of Chinese origin in the Great Hall of the People, Jia expressed hope that they would actively invest in the Chinese mainland, by bringing in capital, technologies and talents from overseas and help boost local firms' performance in international competition and cooperation.

The delegation was urged to cement cross-Strait mutual trust and resolutely oppose "Taiwan independence" secessionist activities.

"Thus contributing to the peaceful development of cross-Strait ties and the complete reunification of China," said Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

Jia said he hoped the delegation would foster closer ties between mainlanders and compatriots in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan as well as the Chinese living overseas, "especially between the youths."

He also encouraged them to promote Chinese culture, communicate to the world China's pursuit of peaceful development, and help boost friendship between the Chinese and the world.

This was the 11th such delegation to visit the Chinese mainland. A total of 2,000 overseas outstanding young people of Chinese origin have visited the mainland in 10 delegations over the years.

These activities have facilitated their exchanges with mainland youth and improved their self-identity as a member of the Chinese nation.

Jia at Friday's meeting briefed the delegation on the conditions of China's economy, which is growing at a relatively fast speed but also faces problems.

He said he is confident that if the Chinese at home and abroad unite and help each other they will overcome hardship and create a better future.
