The pilot zone was established in 2009 to improve cross-Straits business cooperation.

During his visit Xi urged local officials to continue to be innovative and to preserve the healthy cross-Straits business and industrial cooperation environment.

Xi visited a local factory affiliated to TPK, a touch solution provider from Taiwan, where a meeting with Taiwanese entrepreneurs was held.

He said during the meeting that "the mainland has a large population, a broad market and a wide scope of industries, thus, it is big enough for Taiwan products and enterprises".

Xi said he hoped the entrepreneurs would continue to contribute to the economic cooperation and peaceful development of cross-Straits relations.

He also boarded a ferry that was about to leave for Taiwan, greeting tourists and encouraging them to take more cross-Straits trips to improve mutual relations.
