中國擔憂台灣「民主輸出」大陸禁自由行

上半年中國到台灣的遊客約有63萬人次。大陸47個省市8月1日起停發赴台自由行通行證,下半年也傳將限縮團客。

中國禁止陸客來台自由行傳出關鍵原因是受到反送中事件影響,中國擔憂台灣「民主輸出」。港人抗議行動遍地開花,在台灣出現一系列聲援活動,北京政府擔心中國人來台旅遊,接收自由民主思想,複製港台模式爭民主。相關報導:China Bans Citizens From Traveling to Taiwan as Individual Tourists

 

In the past, only travelers from 47 cities were allowed to visit Taiwan independently, including Beijing, Shanghai and Xiamen. However, China stops issuing individual travel permits to Taiwan to people from Aug. 1. After Aug. 1, tourists can only visit Taiwan in groups.

Many nformation were being blocked by mainland China. The key reason why China prohibits passengers from visiting Taiwan for individual travel might have something to do with Hong Kong’s citywide protests. China worried that Taiwan becomes the channel to output liberal democratic ideas. 

In recent years, China has stepped up military drills around Taiwan, including regularly flying what Beijing calls “island encirclement” exercises and sending warships into surrounding waters.

The ban is effective from Aug. 1, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. From now on, Chinese nationals can only travel to Taiwan by registering tour groups.
The ministry’s statement didn’t provide any details or the reasons behind the new policy.

Will the unexpected move have a huge impact on Taiwan’s tourism and economy?
China accounted for almost one-third of total visitors to Taiwan in May 2019, according to a Bloomberg calculation based on data published by Taiwan’s tourism bureau. In 2018, 2.69 million mainland tourists visited Taiwan.

台灣青年民主協會理事吳奕柔:「台灣發展至今,民主發展遠遠超過中國,他們來台灣會嘆為觀止

在台港生:「中國內地封鎖資訊方法太多,有篩選過給他們民眾看。」(新聞出處)

資深媒體人溫朗東:「封鎖香港反送中訊息,中國人來到台灣,中國沒辦法馬上控制資訊,台北台中連儂牆對一國兩制的不滿,民主輸出會對北京產生質疑,自由行團客限縮,達成控管目的。」相關報導:China stops issuing individual travel permits to Taiwan

 

日本媒體「Zakzak」於8月3日刊登一篇文章「「中國人不能去,現在是到台灣旅遊的好時機」不少日本網友紛紛表態要到台灣旅遊,「陸客不多太好了」、「速到台灣支援」、「本來要去韓國畢旅,現在改去台灣」,還有日本網友陸續PO出曾在台灣各景點的打卡照片。PTT鄉民們留言「台日友好」「沒有中國遊客=賣點XD」,甚至有人分析通常大陸散客素質比較好。

大陸官方昨天突然宣布停發赴台「自由行」簽證,許多大陸民眾計劃好的台灣假期被迫取消。啽「李榮浩怎麼去台灣見楊丞琳」意外成為熱門話題。2019年七月11日,大陸歌手李榮浩公開宣布向台灣歌手女友楊丞琳求婚成功。

大陸文化和旅遊部官網昨天公告,鑒於當前兩岸關係,自8月1日起暫停申請及核發赴台灣自由行通行證。新聞一出,有大陸網民在社交網絡發文問道,「李榮浩以後怎麼去台灣見楊丞琳」。網民熱議,8月1日開始,李榮浩要去台灣找楊丞琳,豈不就只能跟團了?
