The event has paved a road of friendship and cooperation for the cities along the route with the theme "One Exhibition, One Memorandum, One Performance". “On this basis, we will continue to write a new chapter in the development of the Maritime Silk Road," said Mr. Lu Zhiqiang at the launch event.

The "Floral Whisper along the Silk Road" cultural performances including classic music of Guangdong, Cantonese Opera provided a magnificent gala to the local audience.

The maritime silk road is a maritime passage connecting China and the world which appeared in 200 BC, leaving a lot of precious cultural heritage.

As the “Millennium Business City” and one of the birthplaces of the ancient Maritime Silk Road, Guangzhou has a glorious history of global trade, civilization and mutual understanding for more than two thousand years. Guangzhou has developed and integrated diversified culture, forming an urban character of openness and inclusiveness. Taking the "Floral Whisper along the Silk Road" as an opportunity, Guangzhou is vigorously facilitating the circulation of cultural elements of the maritime silk road worldwide and further enhancing its international influence.

Cultural promotion activities of the Maritime Silk Road were also held in major cities of the three countries on the ancient Maritime Silk Road. Through the combination of four programs, namely “Maritime Silk Road Impression”, “Maritime Silk Road Expression”, “Maritime Silk Road Flavor” and “Maritime Silk Road Memories”, the culture of the Maritime Silk Road and the image of Guangzhou were promoted from various perspectives. The atmosphere was vibrant and lively.

Guangzhou hopes to carry out exchanges and cooperation in various forms with the countries along the maritime silk road, laying a broad public opinion foundation for the overall cultural protection of the maritime silk road and establishing an international cultural exchange platform so as to realize the common prosperity of the cultural heritage of the cities and regions along the maritime silk road.
