    Vietnamese in Taiwan fear an anti-Vietnam backlash may soon ensue (2014/05/14)

    Taiwanese and Vietnamese enjoy a close relationship, with many local foreign brides and laborers coming from Vietnam. These immigrants and guests fear a backlash due to the anti-China riots in their native country.

    Wu Kun-ling is the second-generation owner of a local Vietnamese restaurant. At the age of 13, she came with her father from Vietnam to Taiwan to open this restaurant. Later, she married a Taiwanese person. She worries that the relationship between Taiwan and Vietnam could change due to recent events.

    I think there is some misunderstanding, like many believe that Taiwan is the same as China. Actually, Taiwan is a democratic country and different from mainland China.

    Another person who shares her same concern is Yan Pei-ying, who is from Vietnam and works for the Ministry of Immigration. When she heard the startling news of violent anti-China protests, she urged her family and friends to look out for their safety and not get involved.

    I told friends not to participate in these bad activities.

    Upwards of 90,000 foreign brides in Taiwan are from Vietnam. After adding students and laborers, the total number of Vietnamese living here exceeds 400,000. They are closely monitoring the situation and hoping that Taiwanese can be sympathetic to their plight.

    台越很緊密

    台越兩國關係緊密,因嫁娶來台定居的配偶,人數就多達8萬9千人,加上留學生與勞工,人數少說40萬。不少越南人,把台灣視為第二故鄉,落地深根、開創事業。手心手背都是肉,排華暴動也讓新住民們,憂心忡忡。

    餐廳第二代經營人吳坤玲,13歲就跟著父親從越南來台,開餐廳賣越南家鄉味,之後還成了台灣媳婦,不樂見台越關係因誤會生變。

    其實可能就有一些誤解,很像認為說台灣跟中國就是一樣的,畫上等號,台灣是一個自由的國家,跟中國大陸比較不一樣。

    有相同憂慮的還有她,任職移民署的嚴沛瀅。聽聞故鄉越南,驚傳暴力排華事件,嚴沛瀅第一時間致電當地,要親友們注意安全、別淌混水。

    告訴朋友說,我們就不要參與一些不好的活動。

    像她們一樣來自越南,因嫁娶來台的新住民,就有將近9萬人,再加上來台求學與工作的,在台越南人有超過40萬人,台越關係緊密,在排華暴動的節骨眼上,新住民緊盯情勢,一刻不敢鬆懈。
