"Chengdu is making great efforts to build itself to be an international music capital. On behalf of all Chengdu citizens, I'd like to express my sincere thanks to all of our sister cities for your strong support to Chengdu, and to all the domestic and foreign artists for your 3 nights of wonderful performances," said an official from the Foreign Affairs Office of the Chengdu Municipal People's Government at the closing ceremony. He attributed the success of the festival to the vigorous support of the art troupes from home and abroad.
After the ceremony, the musicians from Chengdu's sister cities were reluctant to say goodbye to the city and the friends they'd made here. They said they will look forward to coming to Chengdu again next summer. For them, the music festival has built up an international stage for them to communicate and cooperate with their counterparts from across the world, offering them a fantastic and impressive musical and cultural experience, which let them fall in love with the city where east meets west, and tradition meets modernity.
