Cooperation between the Post and the Chinese Cultural Centre in Belgrade

The first official meeting on the establishment of cooperation between the Post of Serbia and the Chinese Cultural Centre in Belgrade was held today between Zoran Đorđević, Acting Director of the Post of Serbia, and Wang Yanliang, Director of the Chinese Cultural Centre in Belgrade.

They discussed the possibilities for the Post Serbia, as a large and prestigious company with a prominent social role, to connect with the activities of the Chinese Cultural Centre in Belgrade, an official cultural institution of the Chinese government and an important channel for communication between the people of China and Serbia.

Wang Yanliang and Zoran Đorđević exchanged opinions and expressed a strong interest in broad cooperation that would support familiarization with national cultures, exchange of ideas, teaching and training, information services and promotion of tourism, convergence of modern development achievements and other activities that contribute to promotion, exchange and building of national images.

Cooperation in philatelic activity and connection with cultural contents represented by the PTT Museum, as important channels for cultural and tourist diplomacy and promotion of ties between nations, were singled out for the initial possibilities of connection. In this regard, Director Đorđević noted that the Post of Serbia and the Embassy of China in Belgrade successfully implemented similar projects at the end of last year - issuing a special issue of commemorative postage stamps and a philatelic exhibition on the occasion of the centenary of the Communist Party of China, which, he said, was a good example for consideration and planning of activities with the Chinese Cultural Centre, with the aim of “quality, popularization, friendship and cooperation”.

The Chinese Cultural Centre in Belgrade was built and established on the site of the former Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia. The historical events of 1999 give it a special spiritual character. The building of the Chinese Cultural Centre is an eight-story complex with an area of 33,000 square meters, and the external appearance of the building is an important visual medium for the expression of Chinese culture. The cultural centre occupies the first two floors, with an area of nearly 6,000 square meters, and includes spaces such as a multi-functional hall, a tourism promotion hall, a library and classrooms for dance lessons, painting, cooking, tea art, martial arts and musical instruments.
