English Carnival in Taipei

The Taiwanese government held the 2004 English Carnival in Taipei over the weekend, with the aim of highlighting the achievements of its "Building an English-friendly Environment Project." It also sought to demonstrate the importance of English in Taiwan today, as the country strives to increase its international competitiveness and to have its voice heard in the international community. An evaluation committee consisting of government agency representatives, scholars and members of the English media reviewed the achievements of government and private agencies in developing an English friendly environment, including signage, publications, Web sites, English staff training and bilingual customer service.
