For more information on the Cross-strait forum, Erich Shih from Taiwan's Chung T'ien Television joins us on the telephone.

Q1: The focus of the just-opened forum is on culture and education. The four previous forums looked at other issues, and led to considerable benefit for Taiwan in several ways. What can people in Taiwan expect from the forum this time?

Q2: Current chairman of the KMT party at this forum is Wu Poh-hsiung. But Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou is set to run for the chair just over 2 weeks from now. Should Ma Ying-jeou succeed in these elections, what effect do you think this will have on cross-Strait forums in the future?
