Quemoy-Xiamen Bridge/The Third United Front CCP-KMT-VI
On 31 December 2008, Hu Jintao made a bold proposal (or often is called Huliudian or Hu’s Six-Points) to Taiwan. Recently, Ma Ying-jeou has reacted positively to Hu’s call. According to both Taiwan and mainland media , one of Ma’s ideas is to build a bridge which can link Quemoy, a Taiwan-controlled fortified island group off the Chinese mainland and Xiamen, a city in the southeastern Chinese province of Fujian. The bridge can cost of up to something $390.5 million, which is very small cost for both Taiwan Strait Chinese. Since the global financial meltdown, the bridge might be a good idea to expand economy for both sides of the Chinese (Japan Times).
