 Did you know?

The Taiwan in My Eyes competition allows the international community to have a deeper understanding of Taiwan by promoting mutual understanding among diverse cultures and a broader world view in Taiwanese students. Domestic and international students broaden their horizons by simulating different culture so more students can understand the efforts Taiwan has made to achieve the United Nations sustainable development goals. Twelve teams made it through the preliminaries, and over five days the teams visited companies arranged by the organizers and found at least 6 entities to visit. The teams presented their results on March 9, and the results were announced by the foundation’s judging panel.
