In April, 2005 the former leader of Kuomintang （KMT） Lien Chan visited China and achieved the “Lien-Hu Hui” （meeting of Lien and Hu） with the former general secretary Hu Jintao. They reached the “establishing party to party regular communication platform” consensus, addressed “party to party, non-governmental, non-political” regular opinion exchange platform. The aim was to establish consensus and provide cross-strait policy reference through the mutual discussions by the experts and scholars. Until now, this discussion was held 10 times, launched more than a hundred “joint recommendations”, and Mainland China announced the policy of “in favor of Taiwan” including shipping, agriculture, culture, education, finance, etc. With the frequency of cross-strait exchanges, forum topics has gradually transfer to diverse and actual situations from emphasizing the financial exchange. Particularly when Kuomintang regained the power, the topics expanded further to professional areas in emerging industries, nuclear security and so on. It presented that Chinese communist tried to direct our economic strategy through the interaction of the top officials form the two parties.
Afterwards, in order to build the comprehensive communication channel, Chinese communist held the “cross-strait forum” based on the original “west-strait forum” in 2009. Stated it as “civilian, comprehensiveness, society” grassroots exchange platform, which the cross-strait civilian exchange is the largest one to date, and incldues the most extensive participants from Taiwan. It aims to draw the attentions from Taiwan middle-lower class and south-central people. In addition, based on Zijinsan Summit founded in Nanjing in September, 2008, Chinese communism “Taiwan Affairs Office” promoted “Cross-strit Summit” by means of new exchange platform of the cross-strait enterprise executives in 2012. It was defined that “based on the foundation of entrepreneurs, the highest level, the most authoritative and open cross-strait exchange platform”. It expected to deepen the cross-strait economic and trading cooperation, and gain the effects and benefits from the key enterprises. Chinese communist also defined the mechanism above as civilian towards Taiwan exchange platform to facilitate Chinese communist to commence all fields and levels exchange with Taiwan.
Researching the cross-strait relationship needs to quest the realities and truth of the matter from different angles and methods. If simply refers to Chinese official and internal documents, it is easy to fall into the myth of Chinese communist thinking, and unable to retain the objective stance. Thus it requires to observe and analyze through the different angles and stances so as to increase the credibility of the research. Hence, this study mainly uses the three methods of document analysis, inductive methodology, and deductive methodology to commence researching, and leverages the historical research approach. The purpose is to research the historical truth in the past and discover the causal relationship and the rules and laws of development so as to understand the present and predict the future. Finally, I hope to know Chinese communist in the future by cross strait situation changes and the impact of Taiwan party alternation. I will study how Chinese communist adjusts the functions of the above platforms to develop and meet the exact working requirements of Taiwanese people.
