ARATS chief to visit Taiwan next month, paper says

Chen Deming {陳德銘}, chairman of the mainland’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS), is set to make an official visit to Taiwan as soon as November and will meet Wang Yuqi {王郁琦}, chairman of the island’s Mainland Affairs Council, United Daily News reported Friday, citing an unnamed official with knowledge of the matter. It is not clear yet whether Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou {馬英九} will meet Chen during his visit. An unnamed person familiar with cross-strait political matters said there is concern that Chen’s visit will have a negative effect on the passage of the cross-strait service pact being reviewed by the island’s legislature, the report said.
