According to him, there is a long history of cultural exchanges between China and Europe. Back in a few centuries BC, the ancient “Silk Road” in between Chang'an and Rome connected China and Europe and opened the channel for dialogue between two civilizations. By 1970s, the European Common Market (the predecessor of the EU) and China established formal diplomatic relations, opening a new chapter of history. In the following 40 years, thanks to the joint efforts of both the Chinese and European governments and people from all circles of life, bilateral cooperation in various fields of economy, science and technology, culture, education, health, etc. achieved good results. On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations when China is committed to the implementation of the “One Belt, One Road” Strategy, the Wenzhou Municipal People’s Government organized artists for cultural exchanges in Europe to present and promote the Chinese art heritage. For the same reason, “Beauty of China-European Tour Exhibition of Wenzhou’s Calligraphy, Painting and Opera Art” came into being to promote EU-China cultural exchanges and to expand the international influence of these unique arts, composing a new chapter and a reminiscently new song of the EU-China cultural exchanges.

It is learned that the works of art will be exhibited and opera performances will be staged also in Vienna, Prato and other European cities to enhance cultural exchanges between China and the EU with the aim to promote the implementation of the “One Belt, One Road” Strategy and to carry forward traditional Chinese culture.
