Senior Taiwan's official Wu Den-yih is welcome to attend early April's Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) on invitation as an advisor to a Taiwan-based foundation, a mainland spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Mainland authorities would provide appropriate assistance to Wu Den-yih, who would participate in the forum as the top advisor of the Cross-Straits Common Market Foundation, Fan Liqing, spokeswoman of the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, said at a press conference.

Activities are currently being arranged for the island's delegation to the BFA, said Fan.

Wu Den-yih was the running mate of the incumbent Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou for the leadership election in mid-January

Ma and Wu won the election and are expected to be sworn in respectively as the island's leader and deputy leader in May.

The BFA 2012, with the theme of "healthy and sustainable development," will be held from April 1 to 3 in Boao, a serene resort on the east coast of Hainan province, South China.
