Major topics raised at the meeting, according to You, were Taiwan's entry into the WTO, the 2001 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum which will be held in Shanghai in October, cross-Taiwan Strait interaction, improvement of domestic investment environment and protection of Taiwan investors in mainland China.
