The Suva Civic Centre was a hive of activity as hundreds of people flocked to watch the Chinese Kungfu and Stylish Shaolin show last Friday night.

The new Chinese Ambassador, Zhang Ping, said the show was a way of promoting and showcasing the Chinese culture to locals here in Fiji.

“By bringing the martial arts troop to Fiji, I think we can have more cultural exchanges with the people in Fiji because martial arts nowadays are so popular in the world and many people in different countries practice it,” Mr Zhang said.

“This is a showcase of Chinese culture and tradition and it is also a good way of promoting mutual understanding and friendship and brings happiness to people in different worlds.”

The performance represented the characters of the Chinese people which are to uphold justice and to be ready to defend one’s self.

“We see this as a vehicle for cultural exchanges and for promoting mutual understanding and of course this is kind of a series of programmes being put together to celebrate the Chinese Spring Festival,” he said.

“Usually during this time of the year we send different cultural groups to different countries so after Fiji they will probably perform in Tonga, New Zealand and other countries in the region,” he said.

The group had their final performance last night.
