Some 100 young people from Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions (SARs) crossed the Pearl River to Guangzhou to stage a performance at the Archaeological Site of the Palace of Nanyue Kingdom on June 17.
Sponsored by the Guangzhou municipal bureau of culture, radio, TV, film, press and publication and the Guangzhou Broadcasting Network, the exchange event created a platform for young people from the three cities to display their talent and local culture via art performance, face-to-face discussion.
Guangzhou has a long history of about 2,200 years, and is a political, commercial and cultural center in South China. The three cities share many similarities in geography, history and culture.
