Unformatted text preview: a choice between spending more effort and money to help the couples and staying put to save costs, I believe that the agencies would be more inclined to choose the latter. Therefore, the government should play an important part in regulating the industry. Most importantly, we must ensure that the couple will be well-prepared to cope with life after marriage. 4. What can/does AWARE do to help these brides if issues occur in their marriage, since they have no one to ask for help in Singapore? In terms of research and advocacy, the foreign brides workgroup is currently examining the existing governance of foreign brides matchmaking agencies and we hope to advocate for an improvement in the governance of this industry. Please refer to the link below for AWARE’s direct services which are open to ALL women in Singapore: http://www.aware.org.sg/cms/content/category/4/104/89/ Feel free to email me if you need further explanations or you want to ask more questions. :) Cheerios, Adelyn 16 Appendix E-2 Email from Mr. Martin Wong (Mr. Cupid) From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Monday, March 06, 2006 7:50 PM Subject: Re: Video Interview Hi I am currently on a business trip and would only be back in Singapore in April (estimated). I regret that I would not be able to accede to your requests. Wishing you and your team the very best in your presentation.

Due to this problem, my group and I would like to ask you if we could schedule a video interview with you. Will you be available this coming Tuesday morning / early afternoon, or anytime next week when you are free. We hope that you will be able to give us an insight on the industry and share with us your expertise in this industry. This would be of great value to us and the class. The follow is a list of questions that we have generated: - What are the procedures for the brides selection? - What are the regulations that the agency ensures for the good of the bride and the groom? - What are the criteria of the grooms and brides selection? - In what ways are Mr. Cupid and other agencies different? - What is the trend in which bride agencies are moving towards? Is it good or bad? Is it accepted by the government? - What are the legal implications, if any. Or Laws that govern the industry?
