Taiwanese seek compensation
Formosa Plastics Group, the largest Taiwanese investor in Vietnam, is demanding $3m in compensation from Hanoi in the wake of the anti-China riots that damaged many factories, with other manufacturers set to follow suit, writes Demetri Sevastopulo in Hong Kong and Michael Peel in Ho Chi Minh City.

The Taiwanese company has become the first foreign investor to seek compensation from the government after Vietnamese protesters last week ransacked one of its factories. The riots at Formosa Ha Tinh Steel left one mainland Chinese worker dead.

Vietnamese mobs last week attacked foreign-owned factories to protest against a move by China to start drilling for energy in disputed waters in the South China Sea.

While the protests were aimed at China, Taiwanese factories – and particularly those that employ mainland Chinese workers – appear to have borne the brunt of the violence.

Taiwan is the third largest investor in Vietnam, after Japan and South Korea. Taiwanese companies invested $1.7bn in Vietnam last year, according to Taipei.

The Taiwanese chamber of commerce in Vietnam said its members were assessing the damage and would provide estimates that the chamber would use for compensation claims.

越南发生反华骚乱、导致多家工厂被毁后,作为在越南投资额最大的台湾企业,台塑集团(Formosa Plastics Group)正向越南政府索赔300万美元,其他厂商也有意效仿。

台塑集团成为首家向越南政府索赔的外资企业。上周,该集团的一家工厂遭到越南抗议者洗劫。在台塑河静钢铁公司(Formosa Ha Tinh Steel)发生的骚乱导致一名中国大陆员工丧生。

越南暴民上周攻击了外资企业,以抗议中国在南中国海争议水域启动能源钻探的举动。

虽然抗议的矛头指向中国,但首先遭到暴力冲击的似乎是台资工厂,尤其是那些雇佣中国大陆员工的工厂。

台湾是越南的第三大投资者,仅次于日本和韩国。台北方面数据显示,台湾企业去年在越南的投资额达到17亿美元。

越南台湾商会表示,其会员正在评估受损情况并将给出损失估计数字,商会将基于这些估计数字提出索赔。
