Taipie, Taiwan after China announced 26 additional "measures" to further promote economic and cultural exchanges and cooperation between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait," including 13 for Taiwanese companies and 13 for Taiwanese citizens, whom they purport will be provided "equal treatment with the Chinese populace." an anchor from China's state-run TV station CCTV called on "Wan Wan (Taiwan)" to return home.

That day November 4, CCTV anchor Hai Xia appeared in a prerecorded video to announce the new incentives and said,

 "We show our sincerity to our Taiwanese compatriots because we are all Chinese. Taiwan's destiny is connected with its motherland. Wan Wan come home!"

"Wan Wan! Mama is calling you home."

"Come home, Wan Wan. Don't let the Americans cheat you. It's the mainland that really wants to protect you

Taiwan's destiny is connected with its motherland. Wan Wan come home!" These words were rapidly shared on China's heavily censored and carefully orchestrated social media platform Weibo, but Taiwanese netizens were incensed at the condescending, childish word "Wan Wan" used to refer to Taiwan.

Hai further said, "Some people are not being pragmatic about such practical measures. They also say strange things and even spread rumors and slander. If they don't have a Chinese heart, how can they understand our sincerity?"

In an attempt to lure more Taiwanese talent, China has announced 26 more incentives on top of the '31 measures' it released last year.

China issued the "31 Measures" on Feb. 28, 2018, in a bid to attract more Taiwanese talent and win sympathy from the public. However, these measures have generally been described as propaganda made in support of Beijing’s intentions to annex the island.

Taiwanese firms can now supposedly also enjoy financing, trade remedies, export credit insurance, import and export facilitation, and standard formulation. They can also support the construction of demonstration sites for cross-strait youth employment and "entrepreneurship" hubs.

The 13 measures directed at providing "equal treatment" to Taiwanese people include providing "further facilitation and support" in the areas of consular protection, agricultural cooperation, transportation, communication charges, home purchase requirements, culture and sports, professional title evaluations, and admissions and examinations, according to the announcement.

In response to the new measures, Taiwan's MOFA (Ministry of Foriegn Affairs) released a tweet at in 2:10 p.m. on Monday, November 4. intentionally written in the Spartan simplified script used in the communist state. The tweet starts out by saying "The TAO (Taiwan Affairs Office) has launched 26 measures for Taiwan, last year there were 31 measures. It looks like a lot of measures."

In reference to the tattered "one-country, two-systems" framework that China has slowly whittled away at over the past 20 years in Hong Kong, MOFA (Ministry of Foriegn Affairs) then writes, "But we have no use for 'one country, two systems.' Really, thanks, but no thanks. It would be nice to also give Chinese people more freedom, oh."
