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.
CCTV reporters on both sides of the Taiwan Straits: Articles 25 and 26 of the "26 measures" proposed that Taiwanese athletes are welcome to come to the mainland to participate in the mainland professional league. Taiwanese athletes can participate in the mainland professional league as internal aid. Please tell us more about the situation. Thank you.
Wu Jian: Welcome Taiwan athletes to join the mainland professional leagues and provide them with equal treatment. This is a highlight of this sports benefit Taiwan measure and it has indeed attracted the attention of the island ’s sports community. In this regard, we mainly work on qualitative and quantitative measures and achieve them through two steps. The first step is to make a qualitative change to allow Taiwan ’s athletes to participate in mainland professional leagues as domestic aid rather than foreign aid. Everyone knows that because of the overall consideration of the league level and the need to train local players, mainland basketball, football and other professional leagues require foreign aid at the level and limit the number. If Taiwan athletes are treated as foreign aid, their Competitiveness is difficult to compare with high-level athletes in Europe and the United States, and it greatly reduces the chance of Taiwan athletes being selected by mainland clubs. Therefore, allowing Taiwanese athletes to participate in mainland professional leagues as domestic aid will provide opportunities for more Taiwanese athletes to come to the mainland to develop and improve their level.
In the next step, we will promote relevant associations and professional leagues on this basis, further develop preferential measures, expand the opening of the league, and allow Taiwan athletes to participate in mainland professional leagues in terms of volume to provide more opportunities and space.
