2. Nanjing World Literary Salon



This event is not only a technological and cultural exchange but also a comprehensive exchange and cooperation plan. We showcased not only Nanjing's technological achievements to the Swiss guests who traveled from afar but also displayed Nanjing's cultural heritage and local customs.


On the morning of April 25th, the Swiss delegation visited the Nanjing World Literary Salon. They learned about Nanjing's literary development over the past 2500 years and its relationship with the city's evolution. The salon showcased why Nanjing was selected as China's first and only "World Literary Capital," allowing the Swiss guests to experience firsthand Nanjing's profound historical and cultural heritage.


3. Dialogue with International Breathwork Masters



Breathing is one of the most fundamental functions of human life, with significant implications for everyone's daily life and work. By consciously adjusting the depth, rhythm, and manner of breathing, it is possible to influence the autonomic nervous system, thereby regulating both physiological and psychological states.


In the afternoon of April 25th, the Swiss delegation conducted a lecture titled "Dialogue with International Breathwork Masters" at the New Art Museum of NACC.


Mr. Mario Domig from IBF introduced cutting-edge breathwork therapy courses, Ms. Jian Geyang from IAK introduced Inhalation aromatherapy and emotional management, and Mr. Marian Siegert from the Health & Happiness AG presented Swiss humanities and culture.

Innovative technology shapes the future

创新科技 共见未来

To further promote cultural exchanges between China and Switzerland, Nanjing Association for Cultural Communication(NACC) signed an agreement with the Interessensgemeinschaft Asiatische Kultur e.V. (IAK) to establish a long-term partnership.


As Bern, the capital of Switzerland, is the economical cooperation city of Nanjing, and next year marks the 75th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and Switzerland, this event signifies a significant step in cultural exchange between the two countries. It not only promotes commercial cooperation and economic development but also advances academic exchanges and provides more learning opportunities for young students. Moreover, it offers channels for artists from both countries to communicate and enrich the cultural lives of their people.


Through this event, we hope to conduct more exchanges and collaborations in the future, bringing more opportunities and benefits to the people of both countries and injecting new vitality into Sino-Swiss friendly exchanges.
