(ZIZ News) – As part of their visit to St. Kitts and Nevis, the visiting group of Taiwanese Youth Ambassadors met with government officials at a welcome dinner at Nirvana Restaurant on Wednesday night.
During the event, the young performers gave the guests a taste of their talents in various cultural art forms.
Resident Taiwanese Ambassador, His Excellency George Gow-Wei Chiou said the exchange programme benefits the students in many ways.
“During the exchange period, a diverse exchange approach will be utilized which includes calling on leaders of the host country, cultural performances and meeting with the local media and the people. This will broaden the international outlook of our youth ambassadors and boost their international involvement,” the Ambassador stated.
Prime Minister, the Hon. Dr. Timothy Harris said he is happy that St. Kitts-Nevis was part of the cultural exchange and noted that the Federation and Taiwan have enjoyed a strong relationship for more than 30 years.
He said, “As we are on the eve of commemorating our own Independence celebrations, we feel particularly buoyed by this visit. It is an indication of the strength and the future of the relationship between St. Kitts and Nevis and Taiwan.”
Other dignitaries attending the dinner included Deputy Prime Minister, the Hon. Shawn Richards, the Hon. Eugene Hamilton, and the Hon. Wendy Phipps.
While here, the group will engage in several activities. Among them will be a performance at the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium on Friday.
