Prof. Wang Yong (Professor of the School of International Studies and iGCU Academic Committee Member) published an article inChina Youth Daily on 2 August, 2022, entitled “'The 1992 Consensus' and the 'One China Principle' are the anchors of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait”
Prof. Wang Yong indicated that following the 1992 Consensus reached by the authorities of mainland and Taiwan in November 1992, people from both sides of the Taiwan Strait had been enjoying decades of peace and stability. He stressed that the 1992 Consensus is of even greater importance amid the current chaos and the strict adherence to the Consensus would help stabilize cross-strait ties, foster regional peaceandstability, and promote the realization of “great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation”.
2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the 1992 Consensus. Prof. Wang reckons that it is vital for us to “learn from our lessons” by reviewing theevolution ofcross-strait relations over the past three decades and to eventually strengthen cross-strait ties. Prof. Wang calls upon people in Taiwan to see through the facade of those who advocate 'Taiwan independence' as well as recognize the deceptive and misleading rhetoric of both the U.S. hegemony and pro-Taiwan independence groups. “It is essential for the youngsters of both sides to improve effective communications and work together to achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation”.
