OFWs THREATENED BY WARMING TIES BETWEEN CHINA AND TAIWAN: "Filipinos might lose jobs in Taiwan following the détente between China and the island nation, according to an association of labor recruiters.
Jackson Gan, Federated Association of Manpower Exporters (FAME) vice president, said the situation is a threat to the employment of 100,000 Filipino workers in Taiwan.
“The warming relations between China and Taiwan could lead to serious loss of jobs for Filipinos unless government exert efforts to increase investments of Taiwanese in the country,” he said.
The increasing good relations between the two countries may encourage Taiwan to move more of its factories to China, where Chinese workers could be hired instead of Filipinos, he added.
However, Gan said the government could revise investment policies to attract Taiwanese industrialists to move their small and medium scale factories to Northern Luzon instead China."
