Mainland lifts restriction on Taiwan journalists for Olympics(通讯员稿)
[ 2006-12-29 11:27 ]

12月27日,由国务院台湾事务办公室制定的《北京奥运会及其筹备期间台湾记者在祖国大陆采访规定》正式颁布,从2007年1月1日起开始实行。与早前公布的北京奥运期间外国记者规定原则一致,将放宽对台湾记者的采访限制,为其在大陆采访提供进一步的便利。

Li Weiyi, spokesman of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council.

The Chinese mainland issued a set of regulations on Wednesday, lifting restrictions on the activities of Taiwan journalists in the run-up to and during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

The regulations, issued by the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, will come into force on Jan. 1, 2007, and expire on Oct. 17, 2008.

Similar regulations have already been issued for foreign journalists reporting on the 2008 Olympics.

Under the new regulations, Taiwan journalists who hold valid Olympic accreditation cards and passes are entitled to multiple entries.

Taiwan journalists are no longer required to apply to provincial authorities for permission to report in areas under their jurisdiction, but need only obtain prior consent of the organizations or individuals they want to interview.

The new regulations have simplified the customs procedures for reporting equipment brought by Taiwan journalists into the mainland by canceling the requirement of an guarantee letter provided by the All-China Journalists Association or local Taiwan affairs offices.

The regulations said that Taiwan journalists may also, through relevant service organizations, hire mainland citizens to assist them in their reporting activities.
Taiwan journalists are also allowed, on a temporary basis, to bring in, install and use radio communication equipment after completing the required application and approval procedures, the regulations said.

Li Weiyi, spokesman of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council said the new regulations were "in line with the common practice of the Olympic Games and would offer more convenience to Taiwan journalists".

"Our attitude towards cross-Straits exchanges are open and positive," Li told a press briefing.

Meanwhile, the official also urged Taiwan authorities to lift a ban that forbids two leading mainland news organizations, People's Daily and Xinhua News Agency, to station reporters in Taiwan.
