China’s Taiwan Affairs Office (TAO) officially opened a special office Friday to manage public petitions related to Taiwan affairs, according to Chinese media.

Petitioning, which is also termed “letters and calls” in the Chinese administrative system, is a device exclusively designed to hear complaints and grievances from the public. Those filing petitions are generally people who feel they have been unjustly treated in real estate transactions, pension payments, education-related issues, health care and environmental cases.

The move is aimed at regulating the management of petitions related to Taiwan and to better serve the needs of petitioners, according to a statement released by the TAO Friday.

TAO Vice director Gong Qinggai urges the public in Taiwan to utilize the office to air their complaints and demands concerning issues involving citizens of Taiwan and spouses from China in order to help solve problems they are facing.
