The 2014 Youth Ambassadors delegation from the Republic of China (Taiwan) is scheduled to visit Saint Lucia from September 11 to 14, 2014. The delegation is composed of 17 college students from music, dancing, performing arts, and other different academic backgrounds and led by His Excellence Ambassador Li Tze-Kang and Art Performance Professor Yu Su-Huang.
The 17 college students were selected following a comprehensive process and undergone rigorous training. Each member is honored to serve as a Youth Ambassador and confident that he or she will make meaningful contributions to international youth cultural exchanges.
They will conduct a stage performance that combine dance, music, and Mandarin language themes, so as to introduce Taiwan to St. Lucia People. The performance divided into 9 themes including “Mountains”, “People”, “Culture”, “Family”, “Feelings”, “Foods”, “Innovation”, “Youth” and “Love” and is scheduled to be held at National Cultural Centre from 7 p.m. to 830 p.m. on September 12, 2014. The Program is open to public for free admission.
During their visit, the delegation will also meet with government officials and the students of Sir Arthur Lewis Community College in the theme of culture exchange of two countries.
The Republic of China (Taiwan) has conducted the International Youth Ambassadors Exchange Program since 2009. Based on the experiences and results of the overseas trips made by Youth Ambassadors over the past five years, the program this year has been designed to ensure continued innovation, while also retaining successful elements of previous years.
The program allows talented Taiwan youth to participate in international affairs and broaden their horizons. In addition, through exchanges and interactions with young people in other countries, the program aims to enhance international awareness of Taiwan’s many roles in the world—peacemaker, provider of humanitarian aid, promoter of cultural exchanges, creator of new technologies and business opportunities, and standard bearer of Chinese culture.
