Tian, Government, Business, and the Politics of Interdependence and Conflict across the Taiwan Strait © John Q. Tian 2006 Strategic Interaction across the Strait 19 point in mainland policy towards Taiwan came in January 1979 when the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee released a “Message to Taiwan Compatriots” initiating a new policy of peaceful unification. This document called for an end to military confrontations across the Taiwan Strait and a revival of contacts and exchanges.

In response to Beijing’s pressure for political negotiations, Taipei has insisted that it will negotiate only when Beijing renounces the threat of the use of military force against Taiwan, recognizes Taiwan as an equal political entity, and allows it space for participation in the international community.

This book approaches the paradoxical development of cross-Strait relations on three levels: the strategic interactions between the governments of the two sides; state-society relations on each side; and economic interactions through business networks.
