Legislator Urges Taiwan to Protect Indonesian Workers

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Vice-Chairman of the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) Hidayat Nur Wahid urged Taiwanese government to look after and provide protection for Indonesian workers in Taiwan since a large number of violations and inhumane treatment practices still occur, especially in the fishery sector.

Hidayat expressed his concerns while receiving a visit from John C. Chen, Head of Taipei Economic and Trade Office (TETO) on Monday, January 9, 2017. Chen responded that he promised to follow-up the case immediately and forward the message to the Taiwanese government.

Hidayat also expressed his appreciation for Indonesia-Taiwan relation that has been great. “Taiwan and Indonesia have a number of collaborations in the trade, agricultural, and also education sectors,” he said Wednesday, January 11, 2017.

In the education sector, according to him, Taiwan’s government has provided a large number of scholarships to Indonesian university students, either in the bachelor’s or post-graduate degree.

Meanwhile, John Chen explains that Taiwan's policy in its foreign political affairs is to broaden relations with big countries such as Indonesia.

The partnerships were not only in the economic sector, he said, but also in socio-cultural matters. “Indonesia is an important country for Taiwan, since there are 300,000 Indonesian workers that are working in Taiwan.”
