Scholars Mark Taiwan Becoming a Province

Xinhua reports on a conference on Liu Ming-chuan, the dynamic 19th century governor of Taiwan.

More than 100 scholars and celebrities from across the Taiwan Straits gathered here Wednesday to attend a workshop to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the founding of China's Taiwan Province and its first governor Liu Mingchuan.

The theme of the workshop was to review the history of the common roots of people on both sides of the Straits and expand future exchanges between Anhui and Taiwan.
