Cross-strait relations have always been important variables in determining Taiwan’s future development. The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has first became the political party in power on March 18, 2000 by ending more than 50 years of ruling of Chinese Nationalist Party (the Kuomitang or KMT), has made Mainland China at a loss when confronting this new ruling party.
More than half a century ago, the central government of the Republic of China (ROC) was moved to the island of Taiwan, when the Chinese mainland was communized in 1949 with the establishment of the government of the People''s Republic of China (PRC). China was then divided into two parts, and ever since then on China has remained separated by the Taiwan Straits. The developments of the relation cross the strait have involved military confrontation, sovereignty dispute toward to the “Three People’s Principles to unify China” and “One country, Two systems”. The “Peace and Stability” atmosphere has emerged during this time, however the principle of “One-China” policy as well as “Taiwan independence” have again increased the pressure and political tense between cross-strait relations.
In August 2002, Chen Shui-bian, the former President of ROC, made his public statements to the annual conference of the World Federation of Taiwanese Associations meeting in Tokyo that “with Taiwan and China on each side of the Taiwan Strait, each side is country and it is necessary to distinguish clearly”. The two sides of the debate between unification and independence has dramatically heighten and Beijing government has re-deliberated the possibility of “de jure Taiwan independence” and passed the “Anti-Secession Law” to prevent Taiwan Independence.
This paper tried to probe into the Mainland China’s Taiwan strategy during DPP’s ruling periods by Chen Shui-bian’s first term (2000 to 2004) and the second term (2004 to 2008) separately, and to find out the Beijing government’s reaction to the changes of Taiwan’s political party in power and its relevant Taiwan strategies. In other words, the purpose of this research is to display a series of the transitions and changes made by Beijing government during the eight years of DPP’s ruling periods when dealing with Taiwan’s strategy. In additions, based on the understanding of aforementioned research, this paper expects to find a middle line both internally and externally in order to seek for a stable relations with China.
