Cross-Strait cruising made easier

Taipei: Taiwan will allow international cruise ships to sail directly from the island to China, without needing to stop over anywhere in between, from early next year, according to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications.

Under the current Cross-Strait Sea Transport Agreement, only ships registered in Taiwan or China are allowed to sail directly from China to Taiwan or the other way around. International ships leaving China for Taiwan are required to sail to a third territory before they can enter Taiwan, and vice versa.  [30/07/13]
