China Taiwan Net Beijing December 25. The Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council held a regular press conference this morning. Zhu Fenglian, spokesman of the State Council Taiwan Office, presided over the press conference.

After the "26 measures" was released, 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 press conference specially invited the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to receive a guarantee center Executive Deputy Director Yang Shu, Deputy Director Wang Zhiwei of the Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Office of the Ministry of Education, Li Jinsheng, Deputy Director of the Professional and Technical Personnel Management Department of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, Hong Wei Inspector of the Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Office of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and the Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Office of the State Sports General Administration Director Wu Jian, I would like to introduce in detail the "Several Measures on Further Promoting Cross-Strait Economic and Cultural Exchanges and Cooperation," which involves 13 measures to provide Taiwan compatriots with equal treatment.
Reporter from Xiamen Satellite TV, Fujian: We have seen that Article 15 of the "26 Measures" states that Taiwan compatriots can apply to become members of professional farmer cooperatives, or they can apply for eligible agricultural infrastructure projects and financial projects. Please specify the situation. Thank you.
Zhu Fenglian: The issue of farmers is an area of special concern to us. Farmers' professional cooperatives are a cooperative economic organization based on family contracting and voluntary management by the majority of farmers on a voluntary basis. They are an effective organizational form for achieving organic connection between small farmers and modern agricultural development. After years of development, the product types of farmer professional cooperatives have become increasingly diversified, and the content of cooperation has been continuously enriched, which has played an important role in leading the development of the industry and protecting the rights and interests of farmers.
Taiwan compatriots can apply to become members of professional farmer cooperatives, which is a favorable condition for sharing development opportunities on the mainland, enjoying equal treatment, and achieving better development in the mainland. In this regard, Fujian Province has taken a step forward. In 2014, the Zhangping Yongfu Fujian Fujian Taiyuan Alpine Tea Production and Marketing Professional Cooperative established by Taiwan farmers was cultivated to become the first provincial farmer professional cooperative with Taiwan farmers as the main body. Special fund subsidy of 10,000 yuan.
On the basis of trials in Fujian and other places, the policies and measures for Taiwan compatriots to apply for membership in farmer professional cooperatives have been further promoted throughout the mainland. After the Taiwan compatriots have applied for membership of the farmers' professional cooperatives, they will have more choices and conveniences in terms of funding methods, business operations, and experience sharing. Farmers' organizations across the Taiwan Straits can promote each other and develop together in terms of management experience and resource sharing. (China Taiwan Net Jia Ruolan)
