Addressing the opening ceremony, Li Xuda, cultural councilor of Chinese embassy in Nigeria and head of the Chinese Culture Center, said China and Nigeria were countries with profound ancient civilizations, and the two countries had many areas for mutual learning in the culture industry.

"We hope to further enhance cultural exchanges between the two countries through this cultural week, " Li said.
