On January 21, all workers of Sweneo Company, the 100 percent Taiwanese invested enterprise, walked off to demand salary hike and improved working mechanism.

According to an official of the Tan Tuan Processing and Exporting zone, leaders of the Swenco have agreed to negotiate with workers and discuss regarding the wage rise by January 23.
