BEIJING - The seventh Cross-Straits cultural industries fair will be held next month in the port city of Xiamen in southeast China's Fujian Province, a mainland spokesman said Wednesday.
More than 800 of the 2,400 booths at the fair will be occupied by Taiwanese companies and cultural organizations, Ma Xiaoguang, spokesman for the State Council's Taiwan Affairs Office, told a regular press conference.
