Almost half of the delegates in the new energy group are Taiwan's industry representatives. They went on a whirlwind tour of four new energy enterprises in Shenzhen and Guangzhou, including the largest domestic producer of solar batteries. Many Taiwan representatives recognize the advancement of mainland technology, and some even say they've found cooperation partners.

Liu Baoqi, Chairman of Taiwan Central Asia Group said "We want to see whether it's possible to cooperate with mainland companies. Now I have seen their products, I think they can be used in our electric cars. By working together, their bottleneck problems can also be solved. We will find more cooperation opportunities."

During their visit, the way industries across the Strait can complement each other was frequently discussed. Taiwan has capital, technology and advanced management, while the mainland can offer a larger market and production ability. Unsurprisingly, mainland enterprises are also considering investment in and cooperation with Taiwan.

Li Yi, Chairman of Shenzhen Technology Co. Ltd. said "We used to compete with Taiwan. But now there's a huge market for power generation products, and I think it's good for us to cooperate with Taiwan counterparts and complement each other."

The Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement between the mainland and Taiwan has created incomparable opportunities for development. There is huge potential for cooperation between emerging industries, especially in the new energy industry. Forming a strategy for working together, and increasing the international competitiveness of cross-strait enterprises is on the top of the agenda.
