The project aims to rejuvenate the city's cultural resources and heritages. A launch ceremony was held at the Wing Hon Theatre in Guangzhou last week. It is guided by the Guangzhou Municipal Culture, Radio, Television, and Tourism Bureau and the Guangzhou Municipal Commerce Bureau.

So far, this project has collected nearly 100 pieces of work, covering time-honored food brands, medical care, intelligent technology, techniques of intangible cultural heritage and home appliances. The judging experts will select a batch of high-quality items from among them as the contents of the gift boxes.

In the near future, you will have the opportunity to view and buy this series of creative cultural products featuring the city's local characteristics at the Beijing Road Cultural Tourism Zone and shopping malls in Tianhe Road, such as the Grandview Mall.
