Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council is looking into recommencing direct ferry services between its islands of Kinmen and Matsu and China’s Fujian province during holidays, reported Taiwan’s Central News Agency.
These services have been suspended as a result of the pandemic.
Chiu Chui-cheng, spokesperson for the council, said the people of Kinmen and Matsu are concerned about the ferry links, which are regarded as a vital channel for cross-straits exchanges.
As such, the MAC and relevant agencies will evaluate the possibility of resuming the services, subject to Covid developments and the general situation.
Details will be shared in time.
