the fifth plenary meeting of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)’s China
Affairs Committee held today, January 9th, the party released its
2014 China Policy Review: Summary Report, accompanied by the following
statement from Chair Su Tseng-chang:
China is a challenge that spans the blue-green divide and must be met by all political parties in Taiwan. The China Affairs Committee is the DPP’s first attempt at establishing a permanent standing platform that, through the use of expanded meetings, attempted to solicit a broad range of opinions from the bottom up, inviting civil society organizations to participate in the process of formulating our policy on China. My hope was that in this way, with an extended communication and exchange of views, the infusion of the society’s energy would help to make our deliberations more thoughtful and more grounded, bringing our policy more closely in line with the expectations of the people. The 2014 China Policy Review: Summary Report is thus the product of the joint efforts of party staff, elite scholars, and civil society leaders.
