NEW DELHI (Taiwan News) -- A youth delegation, under the Taiwan International Youth Ambassadors Exchange Program (TIYAEP), will conduct a musical and dancing performance of the country's culture, Night of Taiwan, at the Ball Room, Grand Hotel in New Delhi on September 1, 2017. It will also showcase Taiwanese youth's dynamics with videos along with their Indian friends.
Staying true to the people-centric nature of the government's New South Bound Policy, this year's theme is "New Taiwan Generation, New Southbound vision." It is being hosted by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Center in India.

The aim is to embolden Taiwanese youth to explore the outside world to make them responsible global citizens and encourage them to assume a more proactive role on the international stage in the near future.  
TIYAEP, run by the ministry of foreign Affairs, is part of the government's efforts to help Taiwanese youth participate in international affairs and promote public diplomacy. Since 2009, outstanding college students have been selected each year to embark on voyages to Taiwan's diplomatic allies and other friendly countries.
It will give Taiwan's youth a more international perspective, and at the same time leverage their creativity and point of view to promote the country's soft power, deepen cordial ties with other countries and give full play to both countries' mutually beneficial strategy of steadfast diplomacy.   
The 75 international youth ambassadors selected this year have been divided into three delegations that will visit two countries each --- India and Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines --  from August 28 to September 6 for 10 days of excursions and exchanges. Each delegation, led by a senior diplomat, will have a deputy and a secretary in the delegation.
