A Chinese mainland official said more efforts will be made to promote the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations and China's reunification.
Zhang Zhijun, president of the Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS), made the remarks in a New Year's message carried in the first issue of the magazine "Relations Across Taiwan Strait" in 2023.
Noting that the association has been upholding the one-China principle and the 1992 Consensus in the past year, Zhang said the ARATS has also handled all types of Taiwan-related emergencies in a proper way.
Zhang said the higher-quality development, higher-level opening-up, deeper domestic demand, and more efficient governance of the Chinese mainland will empower the economic cooperation across the Taiwan Strait and lay more solid foundations for national rejuvenation and reunification.
The association will fully implement the Communist Party of China's overall policy for resolving the Taiwan question in the new era and make greater contributions to China's peaceful reunification, said Zhang.
