Magistracy[change | change source]
Yang held his first official visit to Mainland China just about two month after he became magistrate. This visit is to help the Kinmen development. He led a group of officials from various departments of the county government to Quanzhou and Xiamen in Fujian. This is to promote the tourism and products of Kinmen.
On 12 August 2019, Yang, Penghu county Magistrate Lai Feng-wei and Lienchiang county Magistrate Liu Cheng-ying visited Beijing. They met with Taiwan Affairs Office Director Liu Jieyi requesting Mainland China government to stop banning Mainland Chinese tourists to the three counties. They were banned from travel as cross-strait relations were poor. The mainland government lifted the ban on 20 September 2019.
