More on that CCP-KMT business

Beijing urges closer Taiwan ties (BBC)

Mr Hu was speaking at a China-Taiwan forum in Beijing, aimed at improving ties between the two rival neighbours.

More than 30 MPs from Taiwan's main opposition party, the Kuomintang (KMT), are taking part in the two-day event ....

Mr Hu said this would benefit both sides and help "curb Taiwan secessionist activities and maintain peace across the Taiwan Strait".

A large group of Taiwan's business leaders is also taking part in the forum.

The Liberty Times lists 23 of the visiting legislators and has a picture showing a full list.
Lien Chan is talking about the "92 consensus" to solve practical problems, increase cross-strait exchanges and get the three links running, while Jia Qinglin (贾庆林) (the fourth highest ranked official in China) is reminding everyone to work together for peaceful unification and to crush the Taiwanese independence movement. (By the way, Lien Chan also stated his opposition to Taiwanese independence there.)

You can watch proceedings live from Xinhua and get lots of articles on what they're talking about.
