International Cultural Heritage and Art Exchange Unveiled in China’s Resort Island
The Hainan International Cultural Heritage and Art Exchange was unveiled on January 28 in Sanya, south China’s island province of Hainan.
Covering an area of some 90,000 square meters, the exchange is located in the resort city’s central business district. It aims to introduce international standards to the exhibitions, exchanges, and auctions of artworks and tradable cultural relics, and provides an open, professional, and efficient platform.
China aims to build Hainan into an international tourism and consumption center by 2025, and a globally influential tourism and consumption destination by 2035.
Sanya’s Mayor Bao Hongwen said the exchange will further optimize exchange services including auction, exhibition, and storage, and become a showcase of the city’s efforts to build itself into a core area of international tourism and consumption center.
