CLJ’s link with Belt and Road
One of the steps of producing waxed shell spill showed in the museum.
“The waxed shell honeyed bolus initiated by CLJ triggered a TCM packaging revolution (in past, TCM have to be boiled with water before taking while the Waxed Shell Pill can be took orally) that laid an essential foundation for expanding TCM along the maritime silk road at ancient times”, according to Shi Hongchao, the chairman of Guangzhou Baiyunshan Chenliji Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.
Journalists from Indonesia and Korea concerned how CLJ connected Guangdong with the Belt and Road countries.
Shi also responded with an example to the waxed shell pill. Hundreds of years ago, Guangzhou already had trade with countries along the maritime silk road and local merchants had to take a long distance shipping for sea trade.
In order to keep themselves away from illness, it was necessary to take medicine on their journey. Hence, the use of waxed shell for packaging is the best way of preserving medicine for a long time. Gradually, the waxed shell pill was exported with commodities to countries along the maritime silk road, particularly Southeast Asian countries.
In future, Guangzhou Baiyunshan Pharmaceutical Holdings CO., Ltd will enhance the cooperation with Belt and Road countries and regions to realize the internationalization of TCM in marketing, branding and cultural influence, etc, said Li Chuyuan, the chairman of Guangzhou Baiyunshan Pharmaceutical Holdings CO., Ltd.
