【看英文中國郵報學英文】外傳國民黨主席吳敦義派遣密使前往中國大陸溝通,國民黨13日證實吳敦義派遣國民黨大陸事務人員向陸方接觸,內容為力勸陸方盡速恢復兩岸自由行。

The opposition Kuomintang (KMT) confirmed Aug. 13 that KMT Chairman Wu Den-yih sent an envoy to Beijing exhorting Beijing authorities to restore the individual tourism permits.

國民黨說明,面對當前兩岸局勢緊張,導致台灣多項產業受到衝擊,民眾生計受到影響,黨主席吳敦義最近多次接到我方旅館、旅遊等產業協會的陳情,吳基於苦民所苦,因此命令國民黨大陸事務人員向陸方表達,希望盡速恢復開放自由行,以維護兩岸民間交流。

The KMT said cross-strait tensions have not only impacted local industries but also people’s livelihood. In response to the calls from hotels and tourism associations, Wu sent a representative to China in hopes of restoring the individual tourism permits and maintain contacts across the Taiwan Strait.

國民黨表示,大陸方面陸續祭出限制陸客來台自由行等禁令,台灣方面受到的影響與衝擊已是全面性,並不僅限於國民黨執政的縣市,但民進黨政府面對業者的反映與陳情,卻只能逞口舌之能,雙手一攤,無力解決問題。

The KMT said the travel ban has impacted Taiwan as a whole, not only the cities and counties ruled by KMT-affiliated mayors and magistrates but also the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP). The opposition party strongly condemned the ruling DPP for being unable to solve the problems.
