Dear colleagues, dear friends
I am pleased to send the greetings of Copyro’s members and also of Copyro’s Management, and a successful wish for this first meeting of great importance and for the future work, hoping for a long cooperation, with excellent results, between the writers and the participating organizations.
We believe that the initiative of the Chinese Writers Association is one of those acts full of generosity and courage that ensures a better knowledge of the culture of our peoples and a future of this mutual knowledge. It is an essential element in the process of building the future world in which values are appreciated and respected, supported and disseminated to the general public. Humanity can only move forward if it will know how to embrace all cultural values, of all peoples.
Economic ties cannot be established or developed if nations do not know each other through cultural exchanges. No one does business with strangers. Culture is the guarantor of trust, of knowledge is the one that opens new ways, opens the gates of cities.
Our Chinese colleagues and friends fully deserve all our congratulations for opening this new path of effective cultural knowledge. Copyro is ready to contribute with concrete programs of visits, mutual translations, participation in working groups, so we will contribute to the construction of this cultural “highway”.
Good health and important results in your work!
