Special Report:   3rd round of cross-strait talk

The Chinese Mainland and Taiwan now have two-way postal and transport links. But so far, investment is only going one way, from Taiwan to the Mainland.

The two sides are expected to take up the issue.

By the end of last year, the Chinese mainland had approved 77-thousand investment projects from Taiwan. Cross-strait trade topped 800-billion yuan.

And the Mainland is now Taiwan's biggest investment destination. But Taiwan's door is still closed to Mainland investors.

Last December, the Mainland issued a notice that allows mainland investment to go to Taiwan. The island's media says Taiwan authorities have reached a preliminary draft that will open Taiwan for mainland investment.

The negotiators for cross-straits relations are expected to address the matter and reach some consensus when they meet Sunday.
