Vice President Hu Sishe said in his speech, the contemporary world culture has both distinct characteristics of the times and diverse. As a new type of cultural form and carrier, animation has achieved rapid development in the past two decades and has been widely loved by the people, especially young people. Japan's animation industry has an important place in the world, and it has also played a positive role in the development of Chinese animation for a long time. The animation exchanges between the two countries are not only conducive to promoting the exchange of animation culture of the two countries, but also enhancing mutual understanding and friendship of the youth.

ONO SINNYA said that there have been 46 years since the resumption of diplomatic relations between Japan and China. The signing of the Japan-China Treaty of Peace and Friendship has also passed 41 years. There has indeed been a deep exchange between China and Japan. But what is more important is how to build a foothold for the hearts of the Japanese and Chinese. The cultural exchange opening with anime like this time has made children and young people overcome the obstacles of the nation and the peoples, transcending the specific ideology and the national framework to begin the collision of heart and heart, which caused a great resonance.

One Piece was created by Eiichiro Oda, Japanese manga artist. It began serialization in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine in 1997 and was popular with the animation fans all over the world.  One Piece had been published over 440 million until July, 2018. The touring exhibition in Chengdu will be held from January 30 to May 10.
