As Ronnie said, “The destruction of a nation’s cultural heritage reflects the country’s decline and turmoil, but its restoration is a sure sign of the country’s rise and prosperity. The importance of cultural heritage sites and historic buildings lies in the fact that they witnessed our historical, cultural and social journey from the past to the present. I am deeply honored to be able to participate in the reconstruction of the Garden of the Palace of Established Happiness and the Hall of Rectitude, and I am proud that we have helped to bring modern management into the Forbidden City. Through this sharing session, I hope our colleagues can develop a deeper understanding of the Company’s philosophy toward the restoration and conservation of cultural artifacts. We encourage our colleagues to continue implementing the core values of “sustainability” and “excellence” in their work, while we also hope to stimulate their interest in exploring Chinese history and to propagate traditional Chinese culture.”
