Eight Chinese cities located on the historical "Maritime Silk Road" jointly held their first ever joint cultural heritage exhibition on the ancient trade route. The eight cities, including Penglai, Yangzhou, Ningbo, Fuzhou, Quanzhou, Zhangzhou, Guangzhou and Beihai, held the exhibition in the spirit of integration, sharing and collaboration. The event was also meant to showcase the influence and contributions of the "Maritime Silk Road" in the history of the world’s civilization and to demonstrate the role of the eight "Maritime Silk Road Cities" in the emergence and development of the route.

The "Maritime Silk Road", which came into existence more than two thousand years ago, facilitated economic and cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries, enhanced the friendship between the Chinese and foreign peoples, and contributed to the process of global development by connecting China with the world across the vast area.

The ”Maritime Silk Road“ was composed of two trunk routes: the East Sea Route from China to Korean Peninsula and Ninho Retto, and the South Sea Route from China to South-East Asia and the Indian Ocean Area. The most important Chinese cities along the “Maritime Silk Road” were like bright pearls adorning China’s vast coastline and shining out with great brilliance for the people of the world to see.
