When talking about Guangdong, people often think of manufacturing and trading. However, Guangdong offers much more than that. A total of 12 European photographers from Italy, Germany, France and Hungary travelled around Guangdong from May 11 to 18 to tell Guangdong's stories and beauty through their lenses.

"It is our pleasure and honor to be invited by the Guangdong Government to join this journey. I have high expectations for this journey," said Trizzino Lucio, a Italian photographer who joined the May 11 opening ceremony.

"Guangdong's openness attracted Europeans to seek cooperation opportunities in fields of trade, culture and tourism. More and more Europeans show great interest in Guangdong," said Zhang Zhigan, executive vice director of the Information Office for Guangdong.

In ancient times, the Italian traveler and merchant Marco Polo, and Priest Matteo Ricci introduced Guangdong province to Europe. Guangdong was known as the southern gateway of China and one of the country's first hubs of international trade as well as the fountainhead of the ancient Maritime Silk Road.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of China-EU diplomatic ties. Twenty-six pairs of sister cities in Guangdong and EU have been established.
