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 six years, the program this year has been designed to ensure continued innovation, while also retaining successful elements of previous years.
This program, which allows talented Taiwanese youth to participate in international affairs and broaden their horizons, has increased understanding of our country’s development among various sectors of the host countries. In addition, through a wide array of exchanges and interactions, the Youth Ambassadors have demonstrated Taiwan’s important role on the international stage as a provider of humanitarian aid, promoter of cultural exchanges, and standard bearer of Chinese culture.
To further enhance the outcome of the program, the theme for the 2015 delegation is “Youth from Taiwan, Compassion for All.” The goal is to not only highlight the vitality and kindness of Taiwanese youth, but also reiterate their commitment to issues of global concern such as humanitarian aid and sustainable development.
