Exhibition helps increase cross-strait exchanges
TAIPEI, June 24 (Xinhua) -- A photo exhibition being held in Taiwan aims to increase exchanges between Taiwan and the Chinese mainland.
The exhibition, which features pictures taken by photographers from Taiwan and the northwestern province of Shaanxi, depicts the landscape, culture and economic development of Shaanxi. About 200 pictures are being shown.
Among the pictures, about 100 were taken by Taiwanese photographers, who went to Shaanxi during April and May.
