The exquisite handicrafts exhibition, Beijing Smart Lady, opened at the China Culture Center in Seoul on Oct 15.

The exquisite works included Miao embroidery, cloisonné, egg shell paintings, Chinese knotting, calabash handwork and black pottery. These art works were acclaimed by visitors.

Li Shan, wife of Qiu Guohong, Chinese ambassador to South Korea, said that exchanges between women are an important part of humanity's cultural relationship and strategic friendship in both countries. This exhibition not only showcased the amazing skills and techniques of artists but also showed Chinese women’s love for life and the ideal. In addition, the event expressed their willingness to exchange with their Korean sisters.

Ma Lanxia, president of the All-China Women's Federation, said that China and South Korea provide support for women's employment, self-employment and protection of their rights and interests. Both countries have been committed to promoting the growth and development of women. She wished to invite Korean sisters to Beijing in the future. She cited what South Korean President Park Geun-hye said in her statement, "If you want to go fast, go alone; If you want to go far, go together", expressing the good wishes of women in both countries to cooperate.

Beijing Smart Lady is a brand established by the Beijing Women’s Federation. It aims to exert women's intelligence, promote the development of Beijing folk handicrafts and increase women's employment. And now it has 307 studios in Beijing.

The Beijing Women's Federation (BWF) and the Korea-China Friendship Association of Culture & Economy signed, in Beijing, a framework agreement of strategic cooperation and built the strategic cooperative relationship in July 2014. This exhibition is jointly launched by the two sides to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the establishment of China Culture Center in Seoul. The event will run through Oct 24.
