Ambassador Qi Mei stated in her speech that “China is currently committed to a high-level opening to the outside world, promoting China’s modernization with high-quality development, injecting more new vitality into global economic recovery and sustainable development. This year marks the 52nd anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Austria and the 5th anniversary of the establishment of a friendly strategic partnership. With the strategic guidance of the leaders of both countries and the care and support of governments and people from all walks of life, the friendly strategic partnership between China and Austria has maintained healthy and stable development. In recent years, an increasing number of Chinese films have gone abroad and have been showcased to the world, presenting a trustworthy, lovable, and respectable image of China.”
Ambassador Qi Mei looks forward to more outstanding Chinese cultural products coming to Austria to further enhance Sino-Austrian cultural exchanges and also expressed gratitude to the organizers and co-organizing subsidiaries, wishing everyone a joyous ‘Double Festival’ celebrating China’s National Day and the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Films serve as a powerful artistic medium for conveying the richness of culture and connecting with audiences. They offer a unique opportunity to explore and share cultural stories, traditions and perspectives with the viewers, fostering a deeper understanding of the world’s diverse heritages.
While the film week is drawing to a close, we will continue our involvement in cross-culture activities!
