Cross-Strait Economic, Trade and Culture Forum, commonly known as the Kuomintang-Communist Party of China Forum, was originally proposed by the Kuomintang and the Communist Party of China, jointly organized in order to promote cross-strait economic, trade, cultural exchanges dialogue and integration.
The increased contacts culminated in the 2005 Pan-Blue visits to mainland China, including a meeting between CPC General Secretary Hu Jintao and KMT Chairman Lien Chan in April 2005. They were hailed as the highest level of exchange between the Communist Party of China and the Kuomintang since Chiang Kai-shek and Mao Zedong met in Chongqing on 28 August 1945.
Both Kuomintang-Communist Party of China hold on the premise of acknowledging the 1992 Consensus, encourage the reopening of talks across the strait. Encourage cooperation in economic exchange and crime fighting, push for two-way direct flights across the strait, Three Links, and agricultural exchange.
