A television series produced by the New Taipei City government that gives Taiwan’s new immigrants the chance to tell their own stories will be launched this Sunday night.

The 12 episode series aims to provide new immigrants information related to life and work in their own languages that they can more easily absorb and understand.

The city’s Information Department says it has called on new immigrant groups to get ideas for the show.

It has also asked the Global Workers’ Organization to coordinate an editorial desk that will unearth more stories that focus the spotlight on new immigrants.

Lin said the new series will be aired at 9 p.m. on Channel 3 every Sunday.

The half-hour program will be aired first in Chinese, then rerun in Thai, Indonesian and Vietnamese in that order until 11 p.m.

The program will also be uploaded to the Internet to enable new immigrants to watch it on their cell phones.
