On Aug 25, the National Base for International Cultural Trade (Beijing) was officially opened at Beijing Capital Airport’s Tianzhu Free Trade Zone, which is the second such base in China, and is a composition of cultural trade enterprises and institutions, exhibitions and logistics centers.

The Cultural Minister Cai Wu and Beijing’s Mayor Wang Anshun spoke at the opening ceremony. Representatives from Chinese ministries and provincial cultural bureaus, and foreign diplomats to China from more than 30 countries attended the ceremony.

“The base reflects the scale of development, intensification and modernization of China's cultural trade,” said Cai Wu.

Covering an area of 450,000-square-meters, the base has four trade centers - gemstones, artwork, film and TV, and design and art. Five exhibition halls in the Free Trade Zone have opened to the public.

China's first international cultural trade base is in Shanghai, and a third is planned for the southern city of Shenzhen.
