The 2022 Fun Brazil cultural exchange event, co-organized by the Brazilian Embassy in China and the UNESCO Beijing Office, was held in Taiyuan, capital of North China's Shanxi province, on July 7.
The event was meant to promote dialogue between Brazil and China and strengthen international cooperation between Taiyuan and Brazil. It is of great significance to bilateral relations between China and Brazil, according to Lei Xueyi, director of the foreign affairs office of the Taiyuan municipal government.
Larissa Costa, director of the Cultural Office of the Brazilian Embassy in China, donated books to the Taiyuan Library, and gave lectures on Brazilian history and culture to primary school students at both the Taiyuan Library and Shanxi Library.
Zhao Jinming, acting curator of the Taiyuan Library, issued a certificate to the Brazilian Embassy in China and returned ancient books and picture albums.
Students from the Taiyuan Experimental Primary School performed Chinese opera during the event.
In recent years, Taiyuan has established a twin-city relationship with 12 international cities.
The city has launched exchange projects with Himeji in Japan, Nashville in the United States, Saratov in Russia, and Saint-Denis in France to promote the normalization of youth international exchange activities.
