A Joint Committee on "The World Expo and Taiwan"
(The Central Committee of the Taiwan Democratic Self-Government League (TSL))
The TSL proposed a cross-Straits joint working committee on "the World Expo and Taiwan" and suggested allowing the Straits Exchange Foundation to set up a "World Expo Taiwan Compatriot Service Station" in Shanghai, to better engage Taiwanese compatriots in the Shanghai World Expo.
The proposal suggested inviting well-known people from all walks of life in Taiwan to visit the Expo and to take part in various cross-Straits activities such as forums and seminars. It suggested various facilities to serve Taiwanese compatriots during the World Expo, such as setting up a currency exchange station, opening direct flights between Shanghai and Taipei, using both simplified and traditional Chinese in Expo venues and tourism information; and recruiting Taiwanese working or studying in Shanghai as Expo volunteers.
