Through works of calligraphy and painting, the youth from China, Japan and ROK showed different cultural customs and ways of living of the three countries as well as expressed their common cordial feelings and colorful dreams. By this kind of friendly exchanges, the CPAFFC wishes to enhance mutual understanding and trust among people of the three countries, especially among the youth, and make efforts for Northeast Asia’s peace and stability, prosperity and development.”
