Fujian FAO Promotes the Culture of Maritime Silk Road to Foreign Friends
From November 25 to 28, 2015, after one week of training in Fuzhou, 28 participants (from 18 countries) of the 2015 International Friendship State/Province Liaison Officers Training Program visited Quanzhou and Xiamen. In Quanzhou, the participants visited Quanzhou Maritime Museum. They learned about the background and the development of the starting point of the ancient Maritime Silk Road, and Quanzhou’s understanding on and inclusiveness to foreign cultures and religions. The participants also watched the Cultural Show of the Maritime Silk Road co-sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and Fujian Provincial Government. Some of the exhibits come from the participants’ countries. At Taiwan Research Institute of Xiamen University, the participants asked a wide range of questions to the dean and professors.
Through this visit, the participants have a better understanding on the function of the core area of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, and cross-Straits relationship as well.
