The ranking indicates that Taiwan has demonstrated a serious and sustained effort in prosecuting offenders and raising public awareness of human trafficking.

Japan and Singapore were placed in Tier 2, and mainland China was downgraded to Tier 3 in the 2017 report.
Taiwan’s Ministry of the Interior held a two-day workshop last week, inviting local and foreign government officials and NGOs to discuss ways to combat human trafficking.
