What is the government's cross-Strait policy?


(1) The government will conduct cross-Strait affairs in accordance with the Republic of China Constitution, the Act Governing Relations Between the People of Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area, and other relevant legislation. The government is also committed to maintaining the status quo of peaceful and stable cross-Strait relations and establishing consistent, predictable and sustainable cross-Strait ties based on the existing realities and political foundation.
