Transport chiefs in Fujian province are seeking to encourage cross-Straits travel by permitting Taiwan-registered vehicles to be used in Pingtan county and pressing for similar arrangements for vehicles from Pingtan in Taiwan Balenciaga Speed Trainer Knit High Olive White Sale , a senior official said.
"Fujian's Department of Transportation is working on a program that will allow vehicles from Taiwan, including sedans and trucks, to be driven in Pingtan," said Zhang Zhaomin, a deputy to the National People's Congress and head of the department.
In April, a truck from Taiwan carrying a golden statue of Mazu Balenciaga Speed Trainer Knit High White Sale , the traditional Chinese goddess of the sea who is worshipped by people across the Straits, was allowed on the roads in Pingtan. It had been taken there aboard the ferry Haixia that travels between Pingtan and Taiwan's Taichung and Taipei.
The department gave the vehicle the green light because it came to Pingtan for a Mazu pilgrimage event. The case was a breakthrough for cross-Straits transportation, as the vehicle was the first from Taiwan to be driven in Fujian, Zhang said.
"The case inspired us to create a mechanism that will welcome more cars from Taiwan," Zhang said.
Vehicles from Taiwan will be transferred aboard cargo ships, and there will be no time limit on how long they can be used in Pingtan. Issues such as registration plates Balenciaga Speed Trainer Knit High Black White Sale , vehicle licenses and driving licenses are still under discussion.
Zhang said the provincial government has been negotiating with the authorities in Taiwan with a view to making it possible for cars from Pingtan to be driven in Taiwan.
"The detailed plan will be announced as soon as possible," Zhang added.
Pingtan covers an area of 324 square kilometers and is the closest point on the mainland to Taiwan.

BEIJING, Jan. 19 (Xinhua) -- Chinese authorities announced on Tuesday they have smashed an illegal organization that sponsored activities jeopardizing China's national security.
The suspects, including a Swedish national, have been put under coercive measures in line with the criminal law.
According to a statement from Chinese police and national security authorities, the Swedish national Balenciaga Triple S Low Top Grey Red Blue Sale , Peter Jesper Dahlin, and some other people have been operating an unregistered "China emergency rights aid group" on China's mainland, and had received undeclared money from overseas and carried out unregulated activities.
The police said the organization hired and trained others to gather, fabricate and distort information about China, providing "China's human rights report" to overseas organizations.
It also organized others to interfere with sensitive cases, deliberately aggravating disputes and instigating public-government confrontations to create mass incidents Men's Balenciaga Triple S Low Top Black Triple Black Sale , according to the police.
The police said the organization had been accepting hugh sums of money from seven overseas organizations and the above activities were carried out in accordance with their plans.
Dahlin was also connected to Fengrui Law Firm, which police last year uncovered had organized paid protests.
Dahlin and Wang Quanzhang, a lawyer with Fengrui, co-founded "Joint Development Institute Limited" (JDI) in Hong Kong in August, 2009. JDI operated on the Chinese mainland under the name of "China emergency rights aid group".
Dahlin's organization also provided funds to Xing Qingxian, who had been accused of illegally assisting the son of Wang Yu Women's Balenciaga Triple S Low Top Black White Red Sale , another Fengrui lawyer, to illegally cross the Chinese border.
Dahlin has confessed that all of the "China's human rights reports" were compiled via online research and could not reflect reality. "Not seeing some cases myself, I cannot guarantee they are true," he said.
The statement cited Dahlin's confession as saying that an unspecified foreign NGO had explicitly asked JDI to file no less than 96 lawsuits against the Chinese government each year.
The NGO also asked JDI to help train civil lawyers, each of whom would be paid 3,000 yuan (456 U.S. dollars) per month. While for practising lawyers like Wang Nike Tri Fusion Run MSL Sale , JDI would pay them 5,000 yuan and give them 20,000 yuan for every case against the Chinese government.
Two members of the organization said western anti-China forces had planted Dahlin and some other people in China to gather negative information for anti-China purposes such as smear campaigns.

The police have uncovered that the organization received nearly 10 million yuan from overseas in recent years, yet nearly half of this money was pocketed by Dahlin and his men through false salary receipts and other claims.
"If I give out salaries strictly according to the receipts, there will be no profits for me," he said.
Dahlin has expressed remorse, saying Nike SB Koston 3 Hyperfeel Sale , "I need to offer my deep apologies for hurting the Chinese government and the Chinese people."
The Swedish national was detained on Jan. 3 over charges of funding activities threatening China's national security. He was later placed under residential surveillance. The police said his right to a consular visit was granted on Jan. 16, when Swedish diplomats met with him.
The case is under further investigation.
