Hong Konger moves to Taiwan in pursuit of better lifestyle

Hong Konger moves to Taiwan in pursuit of better lifestyle

The wave of immigration from Hong Kong to Taiwan is rapidly on the rise. More and more people from the former British colony have become dissatisfied over the lack of democracy in the Hong Kong society, and have chosen to relocate to Taiwan in pursuit of better living quality.

Having been in Taiwan since 2007, Ho Chi-ming noted that his friends and family initially advised him against making the move, but have now become envious of his new life on the island. A lot of his friends have even inquired him about Taiwan's immigration policies, Ho said.

"Due to the political situation in Hong Kong, more and more people are becoming dissatisfied with the life there."

Meanwhile, a growing number of overseas students from Hong Kong have expressed their desire to stay and work in Taiwan after graduation.

"I want to start my career in Taiwan because the life here is better,” said A-Hao, a sophomore student in college. He said he is looking for an internship program and even plans to live in Taiwan after two years.
