Ralph LATORTUE exchanges gifts with Li Ruohong

Li Ruohong said although Haiti has yet established diplomatic ties with P.R China, the hearts of two peoples are getting closer as the exchange of culture, economy and trade deepens between the two sides, and the gifts exchanged serve as a catalyst of our enhanced amity. During his speech, Li said the Belt and Road Initiative does not only apply to the 65 countries and regions along the route, it is also applicable for the whole world. Not long ago, China World Peace Foundation and UNESCO jointly carried out a cultural project entitled an interactive cultural atlas along the Silk Roads, and released Peace Garden Declaration in recognition of this endeavor. The program encompasses nine sectors, namely, Science, Technology and Know-how, Pharmacology and Medicine, Costumes and Clothing, Religion and Spirituality, Mythology and Fantasy, Languages and Literature, Arts and Music, Rituals and Celebrations, Food and Gastronomy etc. It is believed that the project will deliver a pragmatic cooperation to promote people-to-people connectivity.
