Taiwan has announced that the country will cover "necessary expenses" for people that flee from Hong Kong for "political reasons" for example because their freedom and safety are threatened due to the new security laws. Chen Ming-tong, chairman of the Mainland Affairs Council has stated that "In the past the NGOs were basically doing that but now the government will stand up and finance the expense".
