Taipei Bureau Director of RSF (Reporters Sans Frontières/Reporters without Borders), Cédric Alviani said Asia is the first challenging location for the protection and development of the freedom of information which is why RSF opened its first bureau in Asia and the 12th bureau in the world. He added that it would not be possible to open a bureau in China and Hong Kong as it would have the same problem. Asked why the first bureau was opened in Taiwan, Cédric Alviani said people in Taiwan speak Chinese and it’s easy to get information China adding that Taiwan is number one in Asia in terms of freedom of information and the rule of law applies in Taiwan without the fear of government’s interference.
