The Chinese Consul General Zhao Shiren says that 2023 will be “the Year of Tourism and Exchanges between China and Pakistan.”
He was speaking at an event sponsored by the Chinese Consulate about China’s intangible cultural heritage at Alhamra Arts Council.
“I hope that this modest exhibition will serve as a good beginning for the Year of Tourism and Exchanges between China and Pakistan and unite the hearts of our people,” he said.
Cultures are diverse, and civilizations are unique, according to Shiren. However, they are neither conflict- or confrontation-prone by nature. Cultures and civilizations should strive for mutual growth, dialogue, tolerance, harmonious coexistence, and peaceful coexistence.
Diversity encourages interaction across civilizations, which in turn fosters mutual understanding and learning.
Zhao Shiren claims that the exhibition is a step in the right direction for greater cultural harmony between the people of Pakistan and China because “the more we were integrated, knowing each other’s heritage, craftsmanship, culture, as well as intangible intellectual wealth, the better we would be doing in lockstep.”
