BEIJING, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Over the past decade, Taiwan businesspeople and enterprises have been beneficiaries, staunch supporters and strong promoters of the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations, a mainland spokesperson said on Wednesday.

Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, made the remarks when briefing a press conference about a symposium held earlier this month on the development of Taiwan enterprises on the mainland over the past 10 years.

Zhu said that more opportunities will be provided for Taiwan compatriots in the future. She also expressed the hope that Taiwan businesspeople will resolutely oppose "Taiwan independence" and external interference, and participate in the just cause of promoting the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations and the peaceful reunification of the motherland.

Recently, relevant departments and localities held a series of cross-Strait economic and trade exchange activities to help Taiwan businesspeople and enterprises integrate into the new pattern of development and participate in high-quality development on the mainland, Zhu said.

She noted that a Jiangxi-Taiwan trade conference will be held in Shangrao, east China's Jiangxi Province, from Sept. 16 to 18, and a cross-Strait forum on technology development will be held simultaneously in Beijing and Taipei both online and offline from Sept. 19 to 20.
