TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- In order to better attend to the needs of new immigrant residents, Immigration Agency director Ho Jung-Tsun (何榮村), together with members of the mainland affairs committee (MAC) and the Strait Exchange Foundation (SEF) visited the association for new residents in Tainan.
Ho met with Mou Yuan-Ching (繆願青), an immigrant from mainland China, who has been lauded for her efforts at self-enrichment to realize her dream, and for setting a positive example for others. Ho also visited with two new Vietnamese residents, Lu Yueh-Hsiung (呂越雄) and Juan Shih Ch'ing Ho (阮氏青河), who are currently studying at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), who gave him a copy of their newly published book.
Ho first visited the Tainan New Residents Service Association and met with its Chairman, Chiu Su-Chen (邱素禎) who has led the association for 7 years. This association is actively seeking funding for employment counseling for new residents, research, and exhibitions.
