Intangible cultural heritage means the practices, representations, and expressions, as well as the associated knowledge and the necessary skills that are part of cultural heritage. The vitality of culture lies in the inheritance and innovation, just the same as the theme of this cultural week. – Chinese Ambassador Sun Weidong
