Taiwan was placed under Tier 1 for the eighth straight year in 2017 U.S. State Department’s Trafficking in Persons report issued on July 27.

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

Taiwan was among 36 Tier 1 countries in the world and one of the four Tier 1 countries in the Asia-Pacific, along with Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.

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.
