Taiwan To Hire Indian Workers Amid Island Nation's Rising Labour Shortage
Taiwan and India have signed a memorandum of understanding on migrant workers that is expected to lead to the South Asian nation becoming a source of labor for the island.
The industries to be assigned and number of Indian migrant workers to be allowed will be decided by Taiwan under the agreement, the Taiwanese labour ministry said in a statement on Friday (16 February).
India has committed to recruiting and training the employees, according to the needs of Taiwan, according to the statement.
The ministry will formally notify lawmakers of the MOU and hold follow-up meetings with Indian officials, as per the statement.
Taipei will declare India a new source country for migrant labour when all preparatory work is in place, it said.
At present, there are four source countries for migrant workers to Taiwan - Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand.
The ministry said that due to country's aging population and low birthrate, the working-age population and grassroots labor force have shrunk sharply.
It said that the shortage of workers in manufacturing, construction, agriculture and other industries is continuously expanding.
The ministry said that the number of Indian workers working overseas has reached 18 million, adding that Indian workers are stable, hard-working, and have good reviews.
"Indian workers with good English proficiency will be targeted at the introduction on a small scale in the initial stage, and the results of opening will be reviewed regularly; if the implementation results are good, the opening will be gradually increased," it said.
