A big name from Guangdong’s medical circle said that Guangdong is more than willing to share their latest achievements in TCM research with France and other European countries, spread Lingnan TCM culture, and therefore spread the benefits of TCM throughout the world.
The tour is being directed by both the Information Office of the People’s Government of Guangdong and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Bureau of Guangdong Province, and organized by TCM institutions from both China and abroad.
