Taiwan compatriots are welcome at the Guangzhou Asian Games, spokesman Yang Yi said at a press briefing, adding that he hopes the Chinese Taipei athletes will perform well.
He said Chinese Taipei will send a 560-member delegation to the 16th Asian Games, which will take place in Guangzhou from November 12 to 27.
