“That’s right. Just like you mentioned. After I took the office, I visited the Department of Culture of Guangdong Province and met with Officer Fang Jianhong to discuss about the cultural exchanges between Guangdong and Philippines. China and Philippines have everlasting friendship with frequent connections. Both sides developed mutual understanding through various kinds of cultural exchanges. In my opinions, topromote exchanges with their own culturebetween Chinese and Philippines students, the communication between schools is the first step. This way can develop positive and optimistic attitudes of the students in the two countries. While learning about their own culture, they can understand and respect other different ethnic groups, customs and cultures through mutual learning and mutual progressing.” The Consul-General answered.
