  Exchanges with Mainland and Macau Counterparts

Reciprocal visits were arranged between the department's key personnel and delegations from Mainland and Macau cultural bodies to enhance networking. In August 2002, Mr Paul Leung, Director of Leisure and Cultural Services, visited a number of cultural and tourism-related facilities in Shenzhen, and was warmly received by the Shenzhen Municipal Bureau of Culture.

A delegation of the department's performing arts venue managers conducted a five-day visit to Dongguan, Guangzhou and Shanghai in November 2002. The delegation paid visits to major cultural venues and met officials of the respective Cultural Bureau of these cities to exchange views and share experiences. The visit helped strengthen ties and pave the way for future partnership opportunities in the Pearl River Delta.

In April/May 2002, 10 arts management personnel from several institutions in Shenzhen were guests of the department for a four-week cultural attachment training programme in Hong Kong.

Many Mainland and Macau cultural officials also visited the department's facilities and attended cultural programmes during the year. Among them were delegations from the Ministry of Culture, Guangdong Provincial Department of Culture, the Municipal Bureaux of Culture of the Pearl River Delta cities and the Cultural Institute of the SAR of Macau.
