Zhong Jing Kun stated that the government has been striving to build friendly working & living environments for new immigrants in Taiwan. This is especially true in terms of their employment, talent development, and empowerment programs for the second generation of new immigrants.
While Taiwan is actively developing the ASEAN market, new immigrants and their children who demonstrate a high level of proficiency in languages used in Southeast Asian countries will be an important boost for Taiwan’s development in The New Southbound Policy.
