3 Filipinos dead in Lian Hwa Foods factory fire in Changhua, Taiwan

Seven employees, including three migrant workers from the Philippines, perished in a food factory fire in Changhua County, central Taiwan, on Tuesday. Four other workers were seriously injured.

 One man, age 30, and two women, one age 29 and the other unidentified as of press time, were among the Filipinos killed in the Lian Hwa Foods Corp. factory fire, according to Changhua County Fire Bureau, which declined to give their names in English.
 Two men and two women who worked for the corporation in Taiwan perished in the fire.

22 employees were trapped in the building when the fire started at around 6 a.m.; firefighters weren't notifiedd of the incident until around 6:45 a.m. 

The large number of fatalities could have been caused by heavy smoke that was in the warehouse there before the employees hid or later spread to the area, the bureau noted.

Taiwan begins awarding NT$5,000 in subsidies to lucky foreign independent travelers starting May

Taiwan's Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) will begin awarding a NT$5,000 (PHP 9,188) subsidy to overseas independent travelers who win lucky draw prizes upon their arrival in Taiwan in May. The total number of recipients will be limited to 500,000.

According to the MOTC, the campaign is meant to attract more international tourists to Taiwan. More information will be released this week.

Before arriving, foreign independent travelers must apply to enter the lucky draw. According to CNA, the lucky draw will take place at five different locations: Taoyuan International Airport Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, Taipei Songshan Airport, Taichung International Airport, and Kaohsiung International Airport.

Cruise passengers do not qualify, according to the Tourism Bureau, because they are considered group passengers not independent travelers.

According to CNA, the MOTC stated that domestic and foreign travel operators who recruit or welcome abroad tour groups for two nights and three days or longer will receive a maximum prize of NT$50,000, based on the group's size and trip duration.


Over 200,000 OFWs in Taiwan "well-protected" , MECO says

The remarks of China's older diplomat in the Philippines against supporting Taiwan are not cause for concern because the situation has remained "very normal" and the welfare and interests of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) have been "well-protected," according to the Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO).

“I would like to assure the relatives, parents, wives or husbands of our OFWs that the condition of our OFWs there is excellent,” MECO chairman Silvestre Bello III said in an interview.

The former labor secretary said there are around 200,000 OFWs in Taiwan. “I would be the first one to tell you in case there is an emergency situation, but right now, no tension. Taiwan is very normal. All our Filipino community members are prepared for any exigency,” Bello said.

According to the Chinese embassy in Manila, Ambassador Huang Xilian's comments about OFWs in Taiwan were misquoted, misunderstood, or taken out of context.

If the Philippines cared about the OFWs in Taiwan, Huang encouraged it to clearly oppose Taiwan independence.

The ambassador warned that the Philippines is “stoking the fire” by offering the United States access to the military base near the Taiwan Strait.

China expressed concern and strong disagreement to a joint Philippines-US statement condemning Beijing's activities in the South China Sea, as well as the rapid deployment of four new Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) sites, warning that "pandering" to forces outside the region could backfire on Manila.

Sen. Francis Tolentino yesterday proposed that the upcoming Balikatan joint military exercises between Philippine and US troops simulate the evacuation of more than 150,000 OFWs based in Taiwan as a "precautionary measure in case the geopolitical tension between Beijing and Taipei worsens."

“I advise the head of the Balikatan Gaming Exercise – Philippine side – let’s include in our practice next year how to evacuate using ships, vessels from Taiwan to Cagayan or Batanes in case – for contingency,” Tolentino, vice chairman of the Senate committee on national defense and security, said in an interview.

He also reminded Ambassador Huang that the EDCA and Balikatan exercises were not intended for "any skirmishes in the Taiwan Strait," but rather for national defense.

Senate Majority Leader Joel Villanueva stated that the government must be proactive in protecting the safety and security of OFWs working abroad.

He said “to act now and come up with a contingency or a safety and security plan which includes repatriation, relocation and reintegration to prepare our OFWs in case of any eventuality, natural or otherwise.”

Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Pimentel III stated that the government must provide assurances that all responsible agencies are doing everything possible to defend the rights of all OFWs, not only those in Taiwan, but all Filipinos overseas, and that their welfare is their first priority.

In an interview with Radio Veritas on Monday, CBCP-Episcopal Commission on Migrants and Itinerant People vice chairman Bataan Bishop Ruperto Santos expressed optimism that providing a better life for themselves and their families would remain the priority of the 150,000 OFWs, and that they would not interfere in Taiwan-China political affairs.
