The Nanyang Culture Festival has been a biennial event since 2008. It is jointly hosted by the Foreign Affairs Department of Xiamen, Consulate-General of The Republic of Singapore in Xiamen, Consulate General of the Republic of Philippines in Xiamen and Royal Thai Consulate-General, Xiamen.
A large number of people from Fujian went to Nanyang, an old term for Southeast Asian countries such as the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, to seek better lives - especially at the end of the last century. Deep ties thus exist between Fujian and those three countries.
The festival aims to introduce Xiamen to the arts, culture, and cuisine of the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand, and consequently to foster friendship and cooperation between Xiamen and the participating Southeast Asian countries.
All ASEAN countries, including Laos, Cambodia, Burma, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, the Philippines, and Indonesia attended the previous event in 2014, bringing their unique cultural products and gourmet foods to Xiamen.
According to the organizers, a series of activities will be held as follows:
