Speech: Culture, Tourism and Innovation: Using Internet and Information Technology for Synergetic Development of Tourism and Cultural Products

Maldives has a rich culture. Due to Maldives'prominent position in the Indian Ocean's main sea lanes, its culture has been shaped by years of interaction with the outside world. It is also one of the world's most popular tourist destinations. Its tourism is built on the natural beauty of the country with limited focus on promoting the tangible and intangible culture of the country. As a result, the world knows very little about the Maldives except for its ecological beauty and the environment. The Maldives also has a tech savvy young population. It is also where the internet is most accessible in all of South Asia. Close to 55 percent of Maldives'population has access to the internet. As such there is great scope for the Maldives to link its tourism and intangible culture using the tools of the internet and information technology to create synergies and create greater "Maldives" brand awareness, and in turn find new innovative ways to show Maldives to the world as more than just sea, sand and surf.

Speech: Inspiration of Chinese Political Culture to Global Governance

The Chinese political culture could inspire global governance in many aspects, including:

1) The people-oriented culture. It gives top priority to improving people's livelihood in state governance. In global governance, the principal of enhancing people's livelihood and improving the well-being of the majority should also be established as soon as possible.

2) Being eclectic and innovative. The idea has led China to learn from advantages of other countries and to keep its own characteristics in the process of globalization.

3) Overall thinking, a tradition that has made China better at long-term strategic planning. In global governance, it's also necessary to help improve the forward-looking planning capacity of the whole international community.
