On 20 September 2017, H.E. Mme. Yang Xiuping, Secretary-General of ASEAN-China Centre (ACC), paid a visit to Henan Museum and exchanged views with Mr. Du Qiming, Vice President of the Museum. Mr. Rong Xihai, Assistant Director-General of the Education Department of Henan province, Mr. Han Guohe, Vice President of Zhengzhou University, accompanied the visit.

Vice President Du Qiming made a brief introduction of the Museum. He said that founded in 1927, Henan Museum is one of the first museums established in China and collects many important unearthed relics in Henan. It now collects more than 130,000 pieces of antiques, which is the biggest Museum for relic preservation, protection, research and display as well as an important platform to explore the Chinese civilization and feel the charming culture of central China. Henan Museum actively undertakes international exchanges through relics display, joint research and other forms. The Huaxia Orchestra of the Museum replays the Chinese ancient music by copying the ancient music instruments unearthed in central China, which is warmly welcomed by the public. The Orchestra has already visited many countries including ASEAN countries like Cambodia and Thailand. Through the unique platform of ACC, Henan Museum hopes to further strengthen cultural exchanges with ASEAN countries and let more ASEAN people get to know Henan, feel the charm of Chinese civilization and enhance the mutual friendship among the two peoples.

Secretary-General Yang Xiuping highly valued the contribution made by Henan Museum to protect the precious relics and promote Chinese civilization. She said ASEAN and China enjoy geographic proximity and cultural affinity. Both sides have a long history and splendid culture. It is meaningful to conduct exchanges and cooperation in relic protection and research to advance the ASEAN-China relations and people-to-people exchanges. ACC would continue to play its bridging role, create more useful platforms for both sides to deepen cultural exchanges, and support Henan to expand its friendly exchanges and cooperation with ASEAN.
