To mark the Year of China-India Exchange, the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi is hosting a photo exhibition at All-India Fine Arts and Crafts Society (AIFACS) here these days offering a visual treat of Sichuan province's natural and cultural heritage.

“Enchanting Sichuan -- Charming China” has on display a wide range of stunning images that leave a lasting impression. Picturesque landscapes, diverse cultural attractions and rich natural resources are all highlighted at the exhibition. Each picture is accompanied by a caption, giving valuable information on the subject. The six-day exhibition acknowledges the fact that Sichuan is a big agricultural province of China and a green shelter on the upper waters of the Yangtze river. It is also the home of the giant pandas.

The exhibition focuses on the exotic culture of the minorities of China. Covering a total area of 485,000 sq. km., the Sichuan province sits on the upper reaches of the Yangtze. Chengdu, the Capital of province, is a centre of science, commerce and finance. According to the organisers, the exchanges between Sichuan and India have been well-established for a long time. In recent years, the exchanges and cooperation between both sides have been expanded and deepened. India has become Sichuan's sixth largest trade partner and fourth largest export market. Cooperation in the field of Information Technology also has a bright future.

Organised by the Chinese Embassy in collaboration with the People's Government of Sichuan Province and the State Council Information Office of China, the show is part of “Experience China-Sichuan Week in India” and on view up to April 30.
