Mission & Services
The Information Division promotes better understanding between Taiwan and Denmark in all aspects by keeping the Danish press, academic, political, and social leaders abreast of accurate and up-to-date information about Taiwan.
To achieve such a goal, the Information Division does the following on a day-to-day basis:
- Disseminates information on Taiwan's policies and accomplishments, with emphasis on its democratic development, economic liberalization, social openness and cultural diversity.
- Promotes Taiwan's culture via publications, audio-visual materials and the Internet, and hosts or sponsors activities that will help enhance the Danish people's understanding of Taiwan and remind them of Taiwan's presence in the international community.
- Prepares summaries of Danish media reports about Taiwan and provides them to relevant Taiwan government agencies for reference.
Along with the publications and audiovisual materials provided by the Information Division, this office also publishes a free monthly newsletter in Danish in both hardcopy and electronic versions delivered to members of Parliament, journalists, think tanks and various institutions. The 4-page newsletter covers significant current events and occurrences in Taiwanese society and cultural life, and has a circulation of approx. 700.
In addition to the Danish-language monthly newsletter, the Information Division publishes a weekly digest of news about politics, economy, and culture in Taiwan.
The Information Division has a reference library which is open to the public and provides periodicals, books and printed reference materials about Taiwan. The library also provides audiovisual materials such as documentary and fiction films and DVDs, CDs, slides, and digital images of Taiwan to the news media, academics, educators, Taiwanese expatriates and student groups.
