The Asia-Pacific Cultural and Urban Development Capacity Enhancement Seminar was held in Jeju, South Korea from July 31 to August 4. The city of Yiwu was invited to participate in the seminar and made a special promotional event titled “Wonderful World in Yiwu.”

This meeting was co-hosted by the Global Network of Cities, Local and Regional Governments (UCGL), the Jeju Prefecture Government of South Korea, and the Jeju Research and Training Center of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research. The main theme of the event was “Culture as a Powerful Fuel for Building a Sustainable City.” At the meeting, Yiwu City introduced the basic situation of Yiwu and the characteristics of urban culture and tourism by showing urban publicity films. It showed the participants Yiwu’s long history and reputation as a city of culture and “the small commodities capital of the world.” The presentation conveyed the unique charm of Yiwu’s spirit and taste, Wu Opera, martial arts, and other local cultural features.

Yiwu also extended an invitation to the participants to join the 9th UCGL ASPAC event, to be held in Yiwu in November 2023. (By Lu Lizhen – Yiwu Business Daily, English text edited by Kendra Fiddler)
