Pakistani Culture Tour Exhibition inaugurated in China


The launching ceremony of Pakistani Culture Tour Exhibition in Shanghai Cooperation Organization Demonstration Area (SCODA) Gandharas Smile was held in Qingdao, a city in China’s eastern Shandong province.

The ancient Gandhara civilization has left indelible footprints in the realm of arts, architecture, cultures and spiritually.

The most enduring feature of Gandhara is its art which mesmerizes the world with its artist brilliance, innovation and intense devotion. It is learned that the central figure of Gandhara is Lord Buddha, which has also been exhibited at the center display of the hall, CEN reported.

Wang Zihai, Executive Director of Pakistan China Center (PCC), while addressing the session highlighted that under the framework of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a great deal of projects that benefit people’s livelihood, including energy, roads, ports, economic parks, agriculture, science and technology, and education, are taking root and bearing fruit in Pakistan.

Belt and Road Initiatives promotion of the Silk Road spirit of peace and cooperation, openness and inclusiveness, mutual learning and mutual benefit, and the promotion of people’s livelihood are very consistent with Gandhara’s broad-mindedness in embracing the achievements of different civilizations.

Syeda Saira Raza, Press Attache, Pakistani Embassy in China, stated at the occasion that while celebrating the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Pakistan, it is also an opportune moment to celebrate the achievement of ancient Gandhara civilization on the common heritage of the two countries.

As the Gandhara civilization has early linkages between two countries, it is pertinent to mention that many Chinese marks including Fa Xian and Xuan Zang braved the hand journeys to arrive at the famous Buddhist seminaries in Pakistan.

They carried back with them not only the light of wisdom and spiritually but also the warm sentiments of brotherly love and respect which underlines our present fraternal ties, Saira Raza further explained.
