BEIJING, May 14 (Xinhua) -- China Development Bank (CDB) will offer 60 billion yuan (8.7 billion U.S. dollars) worth of financing support over the next four years to Taiwan-funded companies in the Chinese mainland, according to an agreement signed Tuesday.
The fund will target areas including high-quality industrial development and cooperation across the Taiwan Strait, start-up and upgrading of Taiwan enterprises and cooperation of young entrepreneurs on both sides, said the agreement between the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office and the CDB.
