The event also allows children from different countries and regions to meet each other through their paintings and start an "art dialogue".

"The work I painted is called The Dazzling and Colorful Light of Winter Olympics, which is about our Olympic athletes going to the Winter Olympics." Fu Ran Luoxuan, the second prize winner of this year's exhibition, said, adding that through this exhibition, she can learn more from children from various places.

Li Xikui, vice-president of the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, said in a video speech that he expected the youngsters to use their brushes to draw bridges of mutual understanding and spiritual connection for Asian countries and regions to learn from each other, to gain friendship and grow together. He expected the children to become friendly messengers of promoting cultural exchange and mutual appreciation of civilization.

Since 2015, the Liaoning People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries has held seven consecutive Asian Children's Art Exhibitions, bridging the gap between young people in Asia.
