    NANJING -- Chinese people on both sides of the Taiwan Straits should take the current opportunity and work for closer economic cooperation to lay a solid foundation for the peaceful development of cross-strait relations, senior Chinese leader Yu Zhengsheng said here Monday.

    Yu, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks at the opening ceremony of the 2013 Zijinshan Summit for Entrepreneurs across the Taiwan Strait in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu province.

    "Both sides should accelerate their steps to promote economic cooperation in order to deal with external challenges and create a new cooperative situation," said Yu.

    Yu said that both sides are now dedicated to economic cooperation, which lays a solid economic foundation for peaceful development and is conducive to the welfare of the people across the Taiwan Strait.

    The business summit was first held in 2008, and this year marks the first "upgraded" annual meeting after the mainland and Taiwan each set up councils of the Zijinshan Summit.
