In the central hall of the museum, Peng warmly welcomed the guests and took photos with them.

Peng said that culture is the spiritual bond of unity and cooperation among partner countries building the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

She said cultures become colorful through exchanges and civilizations are enriched through mutual learning.

“It is hoped that we will further enhance people-to-people exchanges, carry forward the friendship from generation to generation and achieve common development,” she added.

In one of the museum’s best exhibition halls, Peng and the guests enjoyed the exquisite art works of jade carving, weaving, embroidery, bamboo weaving, wood carving and other crafts.

The inheritors of Chinese intangible cultural heritage displayed their exquisite skills such as embroidery and filigree inlaying, which were admired and praised by Peng and the guests.

The guests were deeply touched by a song sang by children from a village in southwest China’s Guizhou Province, which is famous for its singing performances of the Dong ethnic group.
