- Premiere Episode of GTI’s Taiwan Salon Cultural Policy Podcast
WASHINGTON, USA – Global Taiwan Institute (GTI) is proud to announce the inaugural episode of Taiwan Salon, [our] new cultural policy podcast series.
Taiwan Salon aims to introduce Taiwan’s unique soft power resources from the arts to digital diplomacy, journalism, academic exchanges, and more – and to discuss how they are currently being developed domestically and leveraged internationally.
In this premiere episode, GTI Research Assistant Adrienne Wu and program assistant Zoe Weaver-Lee interview minister Audrey Tang, the digital minister of Taiwan.
In a wide-ranging and illuminating conversation, minister Tang discusses how digital tools can strengthen democracy, open new avenues for international civic collaboration, and augment Taiwan’s traditional channels of diplomacy.
