Taiwan stopped recruit of China engineers citing risk of "brain-drain"

Monday, May 3, 2021

Alarmed by a brain drain to China, the Taiwan government has told employment agencies to drop job ads for China-located companies, reports the Nikkei.

Taiwan’s Labour Ministry has told agencies not to list China-located jobs especially those in the chip industry.

“Due to geopolitical tension between the U.S. and China, China’s semiconductor development has suffered some setbacks and as a result China has become more aggressive in poaching and targeting top Taiwanese chip talent to help build a self-sufficient supply chain,” says a Labour Ministry notice seen by the Nikkei.

Offenders will be fined. “If the recruitment involves semiconductors and integrated circuits, the penalty will be even higher,” says the Labour Ministry’s notice.

The ban also applies to Taiwanese companies with plants in mainland China who want to recruit staff in work in China.
