Li Dejin, vice governor of Fujian Provincial People's Government, also noted at the conference that the central government attaches great significance to Pingtan's development.

The provincial government shall continue to support the city's development and aims eventually to build it into a "common homeland" for people from both the mainland and Taiwan, Li pledged.

Zhang Zhaomin, Party chief of Pingtan Comprehensive Pilot Zone, briefed attendees on Pingtan's achievements over the past several years.

Pingtan has witnessed dramatic development in city infrastructure and transportation after investing 250 billion yuan ($38 billion) over the past five years, according to Zhang.

The city still maintains frequent exchanges and cooperation with Taiwan in the fields of economy, culture and society even when cross-Straits governmental exchanges come to a halt, Zhang revealed.
