In a fast-changing world, it is important for every country to increase the awareness of its citizens to face the ever-increasing challenges and opportunities. To promote public diplomacy, the Institute of Diplomacy and International Affairs (IDIA) has conducted the Public Diplomacy Workshops since 2005 and has developed a series of training programs throughout different regions in Taiwan annually. The workshops involve training programs for high school and college students, key NGO and business leaders, as well as civil servants of local governments. The courses of the workshops include introduction to foreign policies, international etiquette, international affairs, economic and trade diplomacy, consular services, foreign services experience-sharing from diplomats, etc. The program has been highly appreciated by the participants, and helped boost citizen’s interest in international affairs and harness support for Taiwan’s diplomatic efforts.
