When they came to the China Pavilion, Chinese and foreign leaders also jointly visited the exhibition areas of Taiwan, Macao and Hong Kong. Li Zhenghong, president of the National Taiwan compatriots Investment Enterprise Friendship Association, who witnessed Chinese and foreign leaders visiting the Taiwan exhibition area, said in an interview on the 6th: "at that time, I was very excited and deeply felt President Xi's concern for the Taiwan compatriots!"

With the efforts of the mainland side, the pace of cross-strait integration and development has been continuously advancing.

This new measure makes us feel warm. "
