- I'd like them (Mainland Chinese) to live here (Kinmen) too. I hope someday they can buy property here and their children could come to school here.
- Wu Cherng-dean (2016) cited in "On A Rural Taiwanese Island, Modern China Beckons" on NPR, 11 September 2016.
- The affections between people from Kinmen and the mainland (China) are as thick as blood. Our ancestors all come from the same place. Our daily lives, economy, culture and language are almost the same. That's key reason why we (Kinmen people) feel close to each other. Basically nobody in Kinmen supports Taiwan's independence. What's going to happen to Kinmen if Taiwan declares independence? As a result, it's easier for Kinmen to do business with the mainland. Beijing is also more willing to provide more preferential treatments to Kinmen as opposed to Taiwan (island). Kinmen is not big, so we must develop our economy along with Fujian province and the rest of (mainland) China. We hope we can do that because we have no other choices.
- Wu Cherng-dean (2017) cited in "From war zone to tourist hotspot: The changing fortunes of Taiwan's Kinmen island" on Channel News Asia, 21 October 2017.
