The Council Conference of Chengdu Overseas Exchange Association

When came back to China with Meet Culture, the culture company founded in Athens which had been focusing on the culture exchange between Greece and China for about three years, Miao Bin, the co-founder of Meet Culture, chose Chengdu to be the base of his company, other than Beijing or Shanghai where he lived for years. Before then, he only traveled to Chengdu and stayed for four days, however, as the old saying, Chengdu is a place where if you come, you will never want to leave.

When he told his Greek colleagues and friends, nobody knew about Chengdu, but only when mentioning the pandas’ city. There are so many cities in China, and it is no easy for people to remember this city in the West China.

After living in Chengdu for months, Miao Bin found that Chengdu was actually making great efforts to connect with the world, and he gradually fell in love with this beautiful city. He would like more people to get to know this city with long history, rich culture and comfortable life.

He started to introduce Chengdu to Greek people through the platforms of Meet Culture, including the concerts, events, cultural projects, etc.. Last October, one idea jumped into his mind – why not connect Chengdu with a city of Greece? So in November, Chengdu met with Patras, the third biggest city of Greece, and this January, the two cities signed the MOU of sister cities in Patra.
