“The Chinese posters that I have seen on display today reveal Chinese peoples’ love for life, for life’s broad colors, its enormous diversity and scope.

I am amazed how Chinese people transform their life experience to posters, and how as a result; they become able to perpetuate their history and culture in the annals of time,” he elaborated.
Dr Burfat attributed China’s marvelous success in all fields to its people’s unshakable faith in them, in their tenacity to take on odds, in their invincible spirit to tackle challenges and their approach to confront difficult undertakings.
