TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – As Taiwan’s economy depends on interaction with the whole
world, the government should explain its workweek reform measures in English so that foreign investors can also understand it, I-Mei Foods Co., Ltd. (義美食品) CEO Luis Ko (高志明) said at a policy discussion September 15.
In addition, Ko also pointed out that the present Labor Standards Act (LSA, 勞基法) no longer corresponded to contemporary requirements, so government officials should go out and take stock of the actual situation on the ground in order to draw up suitable policies.
As the Central News Agency reported, Ko said that foreign investors needed to understand workweek reform, in particular the measure of five days of work followed by two days off introduced last year, so it should be explained clearly in English.
