Xiang Xiaowei, asst. director of Foreign Affairs Bureau, Min. of Culture, said, "During the past thirty years after China's reform and opening up, a slew of cultural exchange events allowed foreign audiences know the splendor of Chinese history and culture, but many foreigners nowadays are more curious about a modern China, so we have included a lot of modern items at the event. They will answer the questions of many young Swiss people."
