Visitors can experience activities like woodblock printing, silk screen printing, and pitch-pot games at the Jining exhibition area to immerse themselves in traditional Chinese culture, as well as ancient Chinese people's wisdom, said a staff member of the exhibition.
A wide range of creative cultural products, such as table lamps made in traditional ways, as well as thread-bound books, will also be exhibited. More than 30 cultural and tourism companies based in Jining are expected to display their products online and offline. Several live-streaming events will also be held to promote the exhibits.
