During this time, antique stores from over 20 provinces and cities across China and Chongqing China Three Gorges Museum will bring thousands of pieces of cultural relics and art works and cultural creative products to take part in the fair.
According to a representative of the Chongqing Antique Store, the exchange fair will cover a total area of 1,500 square metres with exhibits dominated by those from the Qing Dynasty, but there will be no lack of cultural relics and art works with a long history and very high historic value. "We have mainly invited state-owned and privately-owned antique stores from over 20 provinces and cities across China, among who are time-honoured state-owned antique stores from major cultural relics provinces such as Shaanxi, Shanxi, and Henan, while some are enterprises engaged in cultural relics from developed areas such as Jiangsu and Guangdong. They will bring multiple kinds of cultural relics, art works and cultural derivatives including paintings and calligraphy works, porcelain, and jade articles whose prices range from hundreds of yuan to tens of thousands of yuan, and the total value of the exhibited goods is expected to reach over ten million yuan."
