Sino govt jobs for Taiwanese

FUZHOU: Southeast China’s Fujian Province, which faces Taiwan island across the strait, plans to open some of its government jobs to Taiwanese this year, a senior official said today.

“We’re planning to invite some professionals from Taiwan to join us at the government,” said Cong Yuandong, deputy organization chief with Fujian Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China.

Cong said they were likely to start by recruiting people who were specialized in agriculture, water conservation, quake prevention, disaster relief and environmentalprotection. “We know these are some of the areas where Taiwan is better-grounded,” he said.
