The Chinese mainland Wednesday welcomed people on the Taiwan Island to contribute songs for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
The campaign to collect songs for the Games, which started four years ago, involves not only the mainland people but also people in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao, as well as overseas Chinese and foreigners, said Li Weiyi, spokesman of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, at a regular press conference here.
"We welcome music professionals and amateurs in Taiwan to take an active part in the campaign," he said.
Singers from the mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan started shooting music videos of the first dozen Olympic songs in November in Beijing.
In August, 133 singers from the mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan recorded the chorus "We Are Ready" to start the one-year countdown to the Olympics.
