Taiwan listed Tier 1 on US trafficking report

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taiwan has been listed as a Tier 1 country in the U.S. State Department's 2014 Trafficking in Persons (TIPS) Report for the fifth consecutive year, the National Immigration Agency (NIA) said yesterday.

In the report, the Department of State places each country onto one of three tiers based on the extent of their governments' efforts to comply with the minimum standards of the U.S. Trafficking and Violence Protection Act.

The annual report provides a diagnostic assessment of government efforts to combat trafficking, slavery and exploitation. Of a total of 187 countries rated in this year's report, 31 were deemed compliant with U.S. efforts to fight trafficking and grouped in Tier 1.

Taiwan's efforts in prevention and control of human trafficking in recent years have earned it high recognition and praise, according to the NIA.

The report said the Taiwanese authorities fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking. During the reporting period, they continued to prosecute trafficking offenses, including both forced labor and forced prostitution.
