May '09
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) informed that an exposition of African handicrafts to fill the cultural gap between Taiwan and African countries will be held during May 23-31.

Increasing mutual understanding among Taiwan and African countries as well as helping citizens of Taiwan to understand African culture and gain more positive perception of the respective continent is the key purpose of this expo.

Director General of MOFA's Department of African Affaires, Mr. Andrew Chang was briefing media about the exposition at a press conference. He further informed that the exposition titled “Fascinating Africa: Handicraft Expo 2009” will be held at a Mall in downtown Taipei.

Ribbon-cutting ceremony of the exposition will be attended by Foreign Minister Mr. Francisco H.L. Ou and Cultural and Tourism Minister of Burkina Faso Mr. Fillippe Savadogo, said Mr. Chang.

Noting that a similar event had been organized six years ago by the foreign ministry, Mr. Chang added that more than 2,000 handicrafts, including traditional African musical instruments, batik, wooden and bronze sculptures from several western African and south African countries as well as from Swaziland and Libya will be displayed in the expo.

Along with this, various classes will be offered during the exposition and traditional Western African music will also be performed, said Mr. Chang. The Ministry will also host a reception to celebrate African day on May 25, to increase links between Taiwan and its African associates.
