Taipei, Nov. 4 (CNA) Taiwan’s government has drafted a special act to resolve several of the problems 201611040017t0001facing foreign nationals employed in the country, which range from insurance and pensions to the residence status of their children, a Cabinet official said Friday.

Because the problems involve numerous laws and regulations, the Executive Yuan — the top administrative branch of the government — has drawn up a special act to comprehensively “ease residence-related restrictions on foreigners,” said Chen Tain-jy (陳添枝), head of the National Development Council.

The draft act will be released for public discussion by the end of the year at the earliest, and it will not be submitted to the Legislature before the Executive Yuan achieves a consensus on it in society, Chen said.

Chen mentioned the draft measure during a press conference at which the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) presented its 2016 white paper to Taiwan’s government.    [FULL  STORY]
