The cultural fair this year will especially set up the Silk Road Hall and Creative Design and Living Hall in the main venue.
Silk Road Hall was designed to promote China's "One Belt, One Road" initiative and to push the "going-out" strategy of Chinese culture. Creative Design and Living Hall were built to create a huge platform for the exchange of projects, capital, talents, and ideas, which reflect the determination to build Shenzhen into a city of creativity and a home for mass entrepreneurial and innovative talents.
The cultural products of 15 countries along the course of the "One Belt, One Road" and 15 Chinese provinces and cities will be on display at the Silk Road Hall.
