Đào Thị Nhi Dung (陶氏ㄦ容) from Vietnam and Lai Shi Li (賴詩麗) & Chen An Na (陳安娜) from Indonesia are the loyal fans of the【Taiwan Immigrants' Global News Network】and the Facebook fans page “Taiwan我來了”. Đào Thị Nhi Dung mentioned that as they are unable to read Chinese very well, they appreciate the efforts made by NIA to provide news in their hometown languages. With news articles in Vietnamese and Indonesian, they can therefore be updated with the latest news in Taiwan. The Indonesian participants like the “New Immigrants in Taiwan” column a lot, and even asked the editor of【Taiwan Immigrants' Global News Network】for inquiries about submitting their stories.

【Taiwan Immigrants' Global News Network】is an information platform dedicated to new immigrants. It publishes major news happened in Taiwan, government policies and measures, and information in five languages, including Chinese, English, Thai, Indonesian and Vietnamese. Immigrants can thus easily read more news and integrate into the local community better.
