President Li Xiaolin Delivered a Speech

In her speech at the opening ceremony, President Li Xiaolin pointed out that the exhibition series selected photos, paintings, handicrafts, historical books, and performances in different areas of China with distinct ethnic characteristics. The visitors can appreciate the charm of Chinese culture through the exhibits, find out tremendous changes of China’s society, and feel the pulse of China’s development in the new era. In this way, they may fall in love with China and begin their real journey to China immediately after our exhibition. She hopes that the exhibition will serve as a window for the Germans to know more of China, a bridge for the two peoples to connect their feelings and friendship, and a tie to strengthen communication and mutual learning between German and Chinese cultures and to link friendly exchanges between the provinces or cities of the two countries.  

Minister Dr. Konrad Wolf Delivered a Speech

Dr. Wolf stated that mutual recognition and communication among different cultures would not only cross political and economic boundaries but also facilitate mutual understanding among different peoples so as to promote developments in the fields of politics, economics and so on. The 7 provinces/cities engaged in the cultural exhibition series represent almost a quarter of China’s landscape, enabling people in Trier to know better of China, a charming country with various facets, through different activities related to the exhibition.
