H.E. Ambassador Liu Xiaoming Meets with Director of Royal Museums Greenwich


   On April 26, Ambassador Liu Xiaoming met with Dr. Kevin Fewster, Director of Royal Museums Greenwich (RMG) at the Embassy. Mike Sarna, RMG Director of Collections and Public Engagement, Kate Seeckts, RMG Director of Development, and Xiang Xiaowei, Minister Counsellor for culture of the Chinese Embassy were present.

   Dr. Fewster said that RMG attaches great importance to cooperation with China and has held Chinese New Year celebrations for 15 consecutive years. Currently, it is preparing for four Chinese projects, including the "Belt and Road" theme exhibition to be held in the National Maritime Museum in 2020. This exhibition will present to western visitors the history of trade and exchange between China and the West, and interpret the significance of China's Belt and Road Initiative.

   Ambassador Liu highly commended RMG's long-term commitment to cooperating with China and its effort to prepare for the theme exhibition. He said that, on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of China-UK ambassadorial diplomatic ties, RMG's holding the Chinese projects is of particular significance in promoting Sino-British cultural exchange and cooperation and deepening the mutual understanding and friendship between the two peoples. The Chinese Embassy will continue to support RMG and hopes that the museum will go on contributing to deepening the China-UK friendship and relations in the "Golden Era".
