Taiwan’s Presidential Office said Sunday that the government is committed to protecting
workers’ rights and interests and will continue its efforts to improve labor conditions in the country.
The statement came a day after the US State Department released the 2016 Human Rights report.
Taiwan’s Presidential Office noted that the exploitation of foreign workers was one of the major issues listed against Taiwan in the report.
Presidential Office spokesperson Sidney Lin said in the statement that President Tsai Ing-wen and her administration are firmly committed to the protection of workers’ rights and interests and have already made several regulatory changes in that regard.
