After the release of the "26 measures", they were warmly welcomed and affirmed by the majority of Taiwan compatriots and enterprises. In order to let everyone know the details of the "26 measures" in detail, this conference specially invited foreign investment from the National Development and Reform Commission Zheng Zhiping, Deputy Director of the Department, Xu Jie, Deputy Director of the Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Office of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Li Yubing, Deputy Director of the Standards Innovation Department of the State Administration of Market Supervision, and Chen Binhua, Deputy Director of the Economic Affairs Bureau of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council. 13 measures to provide Taiwanese enterprises with equal treatment.
China Daily Reporter: Article 11 proposes to "promote cooperation in the supervision of food, agricultural products, and consumer product safety across the Taiwan Straits." However, some people on the island have questioned that it is difficult to implement cooperation in this area when the current cross-strait negotiation and contact mechanism is suspended. Can this issue be resolved?
Chen Binhua: In order to improve the timeliness of customs clearance, reduce the length of customs clearance, and reduce the logistics cost of enterprises, on November 1, the General Administration of Customs issued and implemented the "Announcement on the Implementation of Credit Facilitation Measures for the Promotion of Imported Auto Parts" Chapter 8708 of the "Import and Export Tariffs" covers 8 HS coded imported auto parts certified by the 3C. The customs can directly accept the certification issued by the certification body during the inspection, and in principle, no sampling inspection will be implemented.
You mentioned the issue of the suspension of the cross-strait institutionalized consultation and liaison mechanism. Due to well-known reasons, the cross-strait institutionalized consultation and liaison mechanism has been suspended, but our pace of promoting cross-strait economic and cultural exchanges and cooperation has not stopped. Promoting cross-strait food, agricultural product quarantine, and consumer product safety supervision cooperation is a concrete measure that benefits compatriots on both sides of the strait and related industries, and the mainland will seriously implement it. We hope that compatriots on both sides of the Taiwan Straits can work together to eliminate artificial obstacles created in cross-strait exchanges and cooperation, and truly enhance the interests and welfare of Taiwan compatriots.
