Bavaria celebrated the 30th anniversary of the establishment of its friendly ties with Shandong province on Nov. 20, 2017 in Munich, Germany. A total of more than 300 people from Germany and China attended the celebrations.
At the reception of the celebration, Shandong presented a plaque of Nishan House to the Chinese School of University of Munich and awarded relevant professors the honorary certificate of “envoy of friendship of Shandong people”.
A photographic exhibition was held in Munich as part of the celebration. The exhibited photos demonstrate Shandong’s brilliant history and culture, natural landscape, modern cities and human ecology, which provoke German visitors’ interest in Qilu culture. Some of them expressed their strong wishes to visit Shandong in the near future.
A competition of welding technology between Shandong and Bavarian workers kicked off in the training center of Munich and Bavarian Handicraft Association.
As is a sister state of Shandong province, Bavaria boasts strong comprehensive strength and has conducted the closest cooperation with Shandong resulting in the most fruitful achievements. Since 1987, Shandong and Bavaria have carried out extensive cooperation in various fields, which has not only enriched the achievements but also deepened the friendship.
