During the event, museum director Shan Jixiang introduced the showpieces to Premier Li and Abe.
A series of high-quality cultural creative products, including new technique-infused designs, porcelain pieces, wood sculptures and bronze and lacquer wares, were shown to the two prime ministers.
Premier Li and Abe also watched the video Digital Palace Museum, a joint production of the two countries.
Premier Li said the exhibition breathes new life to the cultural relics and praised the cooperation in cultural fields between China and Japan. He added the cultural exchange is an important part of the 2,000 years of relations between the two nations. This should provide more opportunities for mutual cooperation, he said. China and Japan should enhance cultural exchanges based on the China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship, attracting more people and giving a boost to relations.
