The show was a successful people’s diplomacy event; the last stop on the tour was Germany, where performances were staged in two cities, Munich and Berlin. The Culture Goodwill Mission’s five European tour performances attracted 5,100 people in all; every show also featured the participation of youth volunteers, helping everything go smoothly. The well-received Culture Goodwill Mission European tour let the world see Taiwan’s beauty and splendor!
