Since the formal implementation of the "Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Residents'Residence Certificate Application and Issuance Measures" on September 1, Taiwanese compatriots in various places have applied for it, hoping to get the residence permit and enjoy "equal treatment" as soon as possible. Media footage recorded the delight of Taiwanese compatriots at this historic moment. However, the Taiwan Democratic Progressive Party authorities across the Taiwan Strait have promised to "amend the regulations on cross-strait people's relations", to take necessary control over those who receive residence permits from the mainland, and even to limit their rights and interests in Taiwan.
Over the years, in response to the appeals and expectations of Taiwan compatriots and Taiwan enterprises, the mainland has upheld the concept of "one parent on both sides of the Straits", and has devoted itself to enhancing the interests and well-being of Taiwan compatriots. The report of the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China clearly states that Taiwan compatriots should gradually be given equal treatment to their compatriots in the mainland for their study, entrepreneurship, employment and life. From the promulgation of "Article 31 of Huitai" at the beginning of the year to the cancellation of employment permits, and then to the issuance of residence permits, are the concrete manifestations of the mainland "the equal treatment one by one fell into practice". Far from acting in opposition to the goodwill and goodwill emanating from the mainland, the authorities of the Taiwan Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) have, instead of acting in opposition, renewed their rhetoric to intimidate the Taiwanese people and launched the so-called "coping strategies" featuring management, cards and blockades. All this is to deter Taiwan compatriots from "landing" with the cold cicada effect, to limit the opportunities and space for Taiwan compatriots to develop in the mainland, and to ignore the interests and well-being of Taiwan compatriots and Taiwan enterprises.
Ironically, not long ago, the DPP authorities in Taiwan quoted the fable of "the north wind and the sun", hoping that the mainland would play "the sun", not "the North wind", and treat Taiwan as warm as "the sun". Some Taiwanese scholars pointed out that from "Huitai 31" to residence permits, in order to give priority to Taiwan compatriots to share the development opportunities of the mainland, the mainland has introduced various measures of "equal treatment", just as the warm sunshine shines on the people of Taiwan. Who is "sun" or "north wind"? Taiwan people have a steelyard in mind.
Intimidation or restriction can not prevent Taiwan people from voting with their feet. Over the past two years, Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authorities have been obsessed with political pursuits, poor governance, a persistently depressed economy, low wages for young people, people's fear of consumption and enterprises'unwillingness to invest, and people's discontent with the status quo and the future has soared. As for cross-strait relations, Cai Ying-wen, with his voice of "maintaining the status quo", refused to recognize the "1992 consensus" and tried to stay away from the mainland market for the sake of one-party selfishness against the historical trend. The deterioration of cross-strait relations has substantially tightened many industrial activities in Taiwan and seriously impacted Shimachi Mio's economy. The mainland's economic development prospects are vast, and the achievements are obvious to all. We should try our best to create conditions for Taiwanese to start businesses and find jobs. The magnetism effect of the two sides'growth and decline will probably be blocked by the restrictive strategy of the Democratic Progressive Party of Taiwan. According to statistics, nearly 60% of Taiwanese working outside the island in recent years work in the mainland, and constantly showing a younger, elite trend. Following the publication of the "Article 31 of Huitai", a poll showed that 60% of Taiwan's 18-29 year-olds expressed their willingness to develop in the mainland. Internship activities in mainland China have been enthusiastically pursued by young Taiwanese students. From financial institutions in mainland China to the media industry, Taiwanese interns are active.
As time goes on, more and more Taiwan compatriots will realize that the mainland is a full opportunity for Taiwan. The DPP authorities should actively respond to the appeals of the people of Taiwan, respect the aspirations of the people on both sides of the Strait to deepen cross-strait exchanges and cooperation, respect market rules and respect the choices of Taiwan compatriots. If we do things in the opposite direction, we will only freeze the faces of the north wind. (Nan Ya)
