Lithuania ambassador to China, Ina Marciulionyte, who has been in China for many years, is familiar with many traditional Chinese customs. But she is particularly interested in the intangible cultural heritages, like paper-cutting, a craft also found in Lithuania.

Chinese paper-cutting has a longer history than its Lithuanian counterpart, and they are different in colors and ornaments, but similar in technique. "We have artists of paper-cutting in Beijing and Shanghai. They also communicate with Chinese paper-cutters."

As a porcelain lover, she is particularly fond of celadon, a pottery with a gray-green glaze. "There are a lot of interesting features like the puppet theater and shadow play that I have observed."

Lithuania is holding a number of promotional events in the fields of tourism, education, and science in many Chinese provinces. "There are also possibilities for Chinese students to study in Lithuania and engage in people-to-people contact."
