Full use of col­lec­tions ‘win-win’

China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - 4 China -

When Chi­nese mariner Zheng He led his fleet on sev­eral global ex­pe­di­tions dur­ing the Ming Dy­nasty (13681644), Fuzhou was his port of choice be­fore set­ting off on long voy­ages.

“From here, our pre­de­ces­sors sailed afar to build a mar­itime road con­nect­ing the East and West,” said Wang Chunfa, di­rec­tor of the Na­tional Mu­seum of China and pres­i­dent of the ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil of the mu­seum al­liance.

“The Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive turns a new page to in­herit their spirit,” the di­rec­tor said.

“We’re thus called to have a more in­clu­sive at­ti­tude and more open minds to make full use of our re­spec­tive col­lec­tions to cre­ate a win-win sit­u­a­tion,” he added.

Guan Qiang, deputy head of the Na­tional Cul­tural Her­itage Ad­min­is­tra­tion, said “more re­sults are ex­pected”.

“The al­liance cre­ates a wide plat­form for mu­se­ums to have closer co­op­er­a­tion in terms of ex­hi­bi­tion ex­change, aca­demic re­search and mu­seum man­age­ment among oth­ers,” Guan said.

Guan cited many achieve­ments made in re­cent years through joint be­tween China and Belt and Road-re­lated coun­tries like Kenya, In­dia, Saudi Ara­bia and Uzbek­istan.
