Taiwan to host gala highlighting Latin America, Caribbean

Taipei--Students from Taiwan's diplomatic allies in Latin America and the Caribbean will perform May 6 at a cultural event being organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) to promote exchanges, understanding and friendship between the people from those regions and Taiwan, MOFA said Monday.

The carnival will highlight the customs and culture of Taiwan's 12 allies in the two regions through music and dance performances by their nationals studying in Taiwan, the ministry said.

The event, to be held May 6 at National Taiwan University of the Arts, will also include an exhibition of the food and art of the various countries, the ministry said.

It said another cultural event will be held in July, featuring a group of renowned artists and traditional dancers from Paraguay, to mark the 60th anniversary of Taiwan's diplomatic ties with the South American country.

The group will give performances in Taipei and Kaohsiung, MOFA said.
