Migrant workers, modern slaves: Rights' groups claim authorities in Hong Kong collude by doing nothing

Hong Kong's migration rules, whereby housemaids have to find new employment within two weeks of leaving a job, make the situation even more difficult. Domestic worker recruitment is a billion-dollar business, and it's growing as the population ages. #Hong Kong #migrant workers #Philippines #migrant labour #International Labour Organisation #ILO #FWeekend

It's all about China for Taiwan's likely new leader, and history's against her | Reuters

TAIPEI Bespectacled and gently spoken, more don than politician, Tsai Ing-wen is almost certain to be voted Taiwan's first woman president on Saturday and, with China pointing hundreds of missiles at the island, thrust into one of Asia's toughest and most dangerous jobs. If she wins, she will lead an island which China claims as its sacred territory and will have to balance the superpower interests of China and the United States with those of her freewheeling, democratic home. As the head of the opposition, independence-leaning Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), Tsai risks antagonising China if she attempts to forcefully assert Taiwan's sovereignty and reverses eight years of warming China ties under incumbent China-friendly President Ma Ying-jeou. #India #France #Middle East #markets #Africa #Hong Kong
