At the end of the 1980’s trips between Taiwan and Mainland China rapidly grew but the long-term status of Taiwanese visiting China has caused a severe imbalance. In addition, entry to Taiwan in recent years has been limited while outbound China tourists have grown. Thus, the government has gradually allowed tourists from China. When Taiwan announced its decision to welcome tourists from Mainland China in 2002, the Democratic Progressive Party was currently in office and the cross-Strait relations were very poor. This caused China to react negatively towards the policy. However, China eventually realized that tourist influx from Mainland China to Taiwan can directly stimulate Taiwan’s economy and employment rate. Soon after, a series of negotiations born of political motivations began between the two parties. Developments were constrained nevertheless due to several political issues. In 2008, the Kuomintang (KMT) won and regained its government authority. The two parties then resumed its negotiations in light of the Consensus of 1992 and droves of Chinese visitors started to arrive in Taiwan. This proves that allowing Chinese citizens to visit Taiwan is not only a simple economic and tourism issue, pondering to much and deeply over the matter by the government. After all, this also demonstrates China’s positive concern and flexibility towards Taiwan policies.
