Taipei, Nov. 3 (CNA) Taiwan is holding a workshop aimed at promoting exchanges with Southeast Asian countries, bringing together 26 young professionals from the region to learn more about the politics, economics and culture of Taiwan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Thursday.

Speaking at the opening ceremony for the program "2016 Ni-Hao Taiwan," Foreign Minister David Lee  expressed hope the initiative will help participants learn more about Taiwan and promote bilateral exchanges.

The 10-day program, which will run through Nov. 11, is being attended by civil servants, party officials, parliamentary assistants, think tank scholars, reporters and business representatives from eight countries in Southeast Asia and South Asia, the ministry said.

Participants will attend lectures on Taiwan, visit the Legislature and meet with officials from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party and the main opposition Kuomintang, the ministry said.

Other places on their itinerary include Pingxi Old Street, National Palace Museum and the Taipei 101 building, it added.

The workshop is being held as part of the government's effort to promote exchanges with countries in Southeast Asia and South Asia under President Tsai Ing-wen's "new southbound policy," the ministry said.

Meanwhile, the ministry will host a meeting on Nov. 15, involving parliamentarians and scholars from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member states to raise awareness of Taiwan's "new southbound policy," the ministry added. (Courtesy of CNA)
