Ambassador Sun Weidong said the People-to-people contact is one of the most important aspects of China’s One Belt and One Road Initiative, because this Initiative aims at not only economic prosperity but also tremendous cultural exchange. Intangible cultural heritage means the practices, representations, and expressions, as well as the associated knowledge and the necessary skills, which are well recognized as part of cultural heritage. The vitality of culture lies in the inheritance and innovation, just the same as the theme of this cultural week. To some degree, culture helps make the world colorful. The ambassador further said, “Intangible cultural heritage has become a hot topic in the world. Many countries are eager to make their traditional handicrafts, skills and rituals. Pakistan is endowed with a rich cultural heritage both tangible and intangible, including mosques, relics, palaces, over 60 indigenous languages, folk music and dances, ceramics, woodwork and so on. China, he added is a country with a long history of civilization, and also splendid intangible cultural heritage resources. Till now, 39 Chinese intangible cultural items have been successfully entered the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, ranking top in the world. China Intangible Cultural Heritage Week is a global event organized by the Ministry of Culture of China, and has been carried out in nearly 30 China Cultural Centers all over the world, aiming at introducing excellent traditional culture to the world, he added. During this cultural week, the people will enjoy modern folk paintings, Chinese Paper-Cutting, Bird-Worm Seal Script, Ceramic Handicrafts, which will serve as a platform for visitors to interact directly with intangible cultural heritage experts from China. China-Pakistan friendship is a precious heritage for both countries and our peoples.
