Updated: 2006-02-08 09:09

Business people in Taiwan have demanded the authorities to reduce restrictions on investment in the Chinese mainland, allow mainland tourists to visit the island, and realize direct air, trade and postal links, according to Taiwan-based media.

Recently, Taiwan media carried lots of news that many Taiwan investors have showed more interest in the mainland by successively increasing their investment in mainland businesses.

Meanwhile, Taiwan investors have showed great interest in the mainland's stock market, especially the A-shares which used to be only available for mainland investors.

The mainland has allowed the people to tour in the other side of the Taiwan Straits, but the Taiwan authorities have declined to lift the ban on mainland tourists, though Taiwan airlines and local businesses have been preparing for receiving tourists from the mainland.

At a recent workshop held in Taiwan, some local business people showed their discontent on the policies of the Taiwan authorities to tighten control over cross-Straits economic exchanges and trade, according to local media.
