The first Guangzhou Salon was held on June 17th in the Museum of the Western Han Dynasty Mausoleum of the Nanyue King. Focusing on the revival of the ancient Marine Silk Road, the Salon tended to continue Guangzhou’s traditional friendship with the Southeast Asian countries.

“Originated in the Han Dynasty, the Marine Silk Road is now widely recognized as the most time-honored maritime route. It is the witness of Guangzhou’s friendly relations with Asian countries”, said Gan Xin, member of Standing Committee of Municipal Committee and Ministry of Publicity Department of Guangzhou.

As Guangzhou is on its way to optimize its economic structure, construct historical and cultural city, and to finally become a cosmopolitan, strengthening the collaboration with its neighbors is essential. Furthermore, tightening the economic and cultural ties with countries of ASEAN will also benefits the security of marine transportation line, energy supply line as well as foreign investment. From this angle, the meaning and function of the blue bond could be far-reaching.

During the Salon, consul-generals from seven Southeast Asian countries made statements, in which they acknowledged the importance of restarting the ancient Marine Silk Road.

“Guangzhou is willing to further the cooperation with ASEAN countries from all levels, such as mutual trade, tourism, cultural exchange and so on. And the friendship between Guangzhou and Southeast Asian countries will last forever”, said Lu Zhiqiang, Director of the Department of Culture, Radio, Film, TV, Press and Publication of Guangzhou.
