Speaking in an interview with Xinhua ahead of the Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations in Beijing later this month, Kong Vireak, director of the National Museum of Cambodia, said since the BRI was announced in 2013, he had been invited to China for several times for cultural events under the BRI framework.

“Within five years, I’ve traveled a lot to China to join exhibitions, conferences, seminars, workshops on cultural exchanges,” he said. “Because of the Belt and Road Initiative, we can make a lot of friends, Chinese friends, and we have a lot of exchanges.”
