2020 International Workshop on Combating Human Trafficking
地點Venue：張榮發基金會國際會議中心Evergreen International Convention Center
On September 1st, 2020, Deputy Secretary-General and Ms. Lucia Tsai, Executive Supervisor of PPSEAWA Taiwan attended the “2020 International Workshop on Combating Human Trafficking” hosted by the National Immigration Agency, Ministry of the Interior. During the opening ceremony, government representatives cosigned the “Anti-Slavery Declaration” aiming to combat “unfree labor”. These included LO Ping-Cheng, Minister without Portfolio, Executive Yuan; CHEN Tsung-Yen, Deputy Minister of Ministry of the Interior, AIT Director Brent Christensen, as well as representatives of Tigerair Taiwan and other businesses.
The main themes of the workshop this year incorporate the “Overall Strategy of combating Human Trafficking”, “The international trend in human Trafficking prosecution”, “Victim protection mechanism”, and “Human trafficking investigation and prosecution” as well as major case studies.
Our government continues to demonstrate serious and sustained efforts; therefore, for the last 11 consecutive years Taiwan has remained on Tier 1 in the Trafficking in Persons Report released by the U.S. We are confident that along with our ample economic power we will also exceed in human rights advocacy. We hope that one day human rights protection becomes one of the most admirable characteristics that represent Taiwan.
