Ms. Faizah Al Blooshi, consul of the Consulate General of the United Arab Emirates in Shanghai, congratulated the Chinese culture museum on its upcoming appearance at the 2020 Dubai World Expo. She said that the friendship between the United Arab Emirates and the Chinese people has a long history. Our ancestors began trading on the ancient Silk Road 2000 years ago and have forged a still vibrant friendship.
The Silk Road, from land to sea, from Chang’an, Dunhuang, to the Mediterranean, Arabia. Silk, clothing, and Hanfu, as early as more than two thousand years ago, have an indissoluble relationship with Arabia. Now, the 2020 Dubai World Expo, the most populous city in Arabia, Dubai, and Hanfu will match each other!
Let’s look forward to Dubai World Expo 2020~
