The fifth Arabic Arts Festival opened on December 19 in Jingdezhen, east 
China's Jiangxi Province saw in-depth cultural exchanges between China and Arab 

The Arabic Arts Festival is an important cultural activity under the framework 
of the China-Arab States Cooperation Forum. Since 2006, it has been held every 
four years in China.

This year's event, co-hosted by China's Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the 
Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jiangxi Provincial People's Government, and the 
secretariat of the Arab League, include a series of activities such as a 
cultural industrial forum, performances, an exhibition featuring works by Arab 
and Chinese artists, and a ceramics creative design exhibition.

The 233 pieces of works standing out in the ceramics creative design 
(copyright) competition, by telling the history and culture of China and Arab 
states, show the achievements of China-Arab friendship.

Exhibitions held in Jingdezhen, also known as China's "porcelain capital", also 
contribute to China-Arab exchanges.

The exhibition of ancient Chinese porcelain for export held in Jingdezhen China 
Ceramics Museum presents 500-odd exhibits to offer visitors a glimpse into 
ancient China's international porcelain trade and reveal stories of cultural 
exchanges along the routes of ancient Silk Road.

Likewise, Jingdezhen Imperial Kiln Museum displays 94 sets of exhibits, many of 
which are related to Arab culture. For example, a batch of blue and white 
porcelain pieces with patterns written in Arabic and Persian are the best 
witness of the exchanges between the Arab civilization and the Chinese 

Since 2009, more than 170 artists from 22 Arab countries have come to China to 
seek inspiration. Some of them have turned what they experienced in China into 
artistic works, as shown by the 80 paintings, 20 sculptures and 20 ceramic 
works gathered in an art gallery of Jingdezhen Taoxichuan.

As China and Arab states strive to strengthen cooperation and promote strategic 
partnership, more fruits of China-Arab states cooperation are expected to be 
reaped in the years to come.
