Wu Rong-i (Chinese: 吳榮義; pinyin: Wú Róngyì; born 15 December 1939) is a politician in the Republic of China. He was the Vice Premier in 2005–2006.[1]


Wu obtained his doctoral degree in economics from Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium.

Cross-strait relations[edit]

In October 2005, Wu said that Chinese reunification is highly unlikely to happen during his lifetime unless Beijing uses force. However, he considers Mainland China as a big brother, and wish to take the opportunity for Taiwanese to invest in the mainland and have peaceful relation with them.[2]

In early October 2013 during the cross-strait peace forum in Shanghai in which attended by officials from the Communist Party of China, Pan-Blue Coalition and Pan-Green Coalition, Wu proposed the idea that Taiwan and Mainland China represent an "allegiance of brotherhood".[3]
