China News Network, Suzhou, August 13th (Reporter Zhong Sheng) On the 13th, the "Cross-Strait Innovation and Entrepreneurship Carnival" ended in Suzhou. During the event, hundreds of young people from mainland China, Taiwan, Southeast Asia and other places coordinated and collaborated to create ideas and create a number of refreshing entrepreneurial projects. It is understood that since the introduction of "Several Measures to Promote Cross-Strait Economic and Cultural Exchanges and Cooperation" (referred to as "Article 31 of Taiwan") at the end of February this year, the enthusiasm of Taiwanese youths to start business in the Mainland has increased. Times.
"Early-stage startup projects in the Mainland will face many difficulties such as equity investment, and the project's survival rate is also very low." Said Wu Wenzhi, president of the Youth Association of Taiwan Compatriot Investment Enterprise Association ("Taiqing Youth Association") in Suzhou, Suzhou. The launch of the "31 Articles in Taiwan" has released a very friendly signal for Taiwanese young people to set up businesses in the Mainland. At the same time, it also eases the tie-up of mainland capital investment in Taiwan youth entrepreneurship projects, which is more conducive to project capital docking and market integration. "It can be clearly felt at this carnival that we used to run after capital, and now we are chased by capital."
According to his observations, after the publication of the "31 Articles in Taiwan", Taiwanese youths became more and more willing to understand the mainland, and more Taiwanese youths were willing to take a look at the mainland and seek a larger stage. "In the past, we only received an average of two or three Taiwan youth delegations a year. Each month this year there will be one delegation. Each group has about 80 people. The number is very considerable and it has increased exponentially."
Zhou Yongsen, deputy director of the Taiwan Affairs Office of Suzhou City, found that "all the entrepreneurial projects formulated by the Taiwan Youth League this time involve the Internet economy. The consciousness of 'Internet +' is very strong, and there is a huge gap with Taiwan's local entrepreneurship, which is dominated by industry. ". He believes that "Taiwan entrepreneurs have begun to integrate into the entrepreneurial environment on the mainland and have a more mature understanding of entrepreneurship in the mainland."

At present, Suzhou City has a total of 18 policies concerning Taiwanese compatriots' entrepreneurial development. Zhou Yongsen introduced: "Recently, we are considering changing the Taiwan Youth Association to the Youth Creation Association, which will highlight the theme of Taiqing entrepreneurship. At the same time, we will vigorously build the Taiwan Youth Innovation Base and hire senior entrepreneurial mentors to provide Taiwan Youth development in the mainland. More convenience. "
Tai Qing Zhuo Haiming started his own business two years ago and opened a restaurant on the mainland. He lamented that in just two years, the conditions for Taiqing to start a business in the mainland were very different. "The mainland originally had huge business opportunities and a broad market. Starting a business in the mainland with the front desk can only rely on the Taiwan Association, and now various communication methods and entrepreneurial platforms have gradually matured. You can also seek help from mainland capital, and entrepreneurship has become more Easy. "
At this carnival, Zhuo Haiming's entrepreneurial plan designed in cooperation with mainland youth won the second place in the entrepreneurial competition. He stated that he intends to continue to cooperate with his partners in the mainland and work hard to make the plan a reality. "Let everyone know that Taiwanese youths can also start business with mainland youths." (Finish)
