It is very meaningful to hold the Balingkang seminar in this context. Balingkang, which has been circulating for nearly a thousand years and is believed by the Balinese people, belongs not only to the Balinese people, the Indonesian people, but also the Chinese people.

Jay Bali Vice Governor Ajie said that Bali and China have a long history of interaction. Chinese culture has been deeply rooted in the religion and daily life of the Balinese people. For hundreds of years, Chinese people have made important contributions to the economic development and social harmony of Bali. The rapid growth of Chinese tourists has also promoted the prosperity and development of Bali s tourism. The people of Bali should be grateful to consolidate and inherit this precious friendship. He wished the seminar a fruitful outcome and enhanced the brotherhood of the two peoples through cultural exchanges.
