Mainland Affairs Council

Cultural and Educational Aspect

What subsidies or incentives does the government provide for cross-strait cultural and educational exchange activities?

Cross-strait cultural and educational exchanges help to promote mutual understanding between the people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. They also enable the exchange of experience, allow complementation and mutual benefit, and promote social prosperity across the Strait. The government's Mainland policy therefore has always prioritized promotion of cross-strait cultural and educational exchanges. In order to encourage cross-strait exchange activities in the private sector, the MAC formulated the Operating Guidelines for the Provision of Subsidies by the Mainland Affairs Council for the Arrangement of Cross-Strait Private Exchanges." In addition, other central government ministries and departments have formulated the following related measures on subsidies:
