Taipei, June 27 (CNA) China would like to share its economic achievements with Taiwan rather than swallowing up its economy, China's top official on Taiwan affairs claimed Friday during meetings at a local university. Taiwan Affairs Office (TAO) chief Zhang Zhijun said at I-Shou University in Kaohsiung that China's service sector is experiencing rapid growth as part of the mainland's economic restructuring, and he hoped the results of that growth could be shared with Taiwan.

He also expressed hope that cross-Taiwan Strait economic exchanges could expand the reach of their benefits and bring prosperity to people at all different levels of society. Also attending the meeting of university officials was E United Group Chairman Lin I-Shou, the founder of the school, who also urged cross-strait businesses to forge stronger partnerships. Officials of TAO and its Taiwanese counterpart, the Mainland Affairs Council, were also present. That meeting was followed by a gathering consisting of Zheng, cross-strait officials, and 20 student representatives.

Only the last five minutes of the gathering were open to the media. The 13 Taiwanese students and seven Chinese students took about half an hour to tell Zhang about their lives in the other's territory. Zhang said during the period that he hoped both Chinese and Taiwanese students could visit each side more often to understand each other better. (By Scarlett Chai and Lee Hsin-Yin)
