Special Report:   ARATS Chief visits Taiwan

Taiwan's regional legislative body has begun reviewing the four agreements reached by the mainland's Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits and Taiwan's Straits Exchange Foundation.

The agreements on food safety and postal services do not need the approval, when the former takes effect on Tuesday and the latter in mid-December. The agreements on direct shipping and air transport are subject to the legislative body's scrutiny.

Decisions are expected as early as next Friday. The agreements, however, will automatically take effect on December 7 in case the legislative body turns them down.
