It is a pleasure to be with you at this Meeting for the Tenth Anniversary of the 2003 Convention on Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) held in Chengdu, capital of Sichuan, in China. Only a decade after the Convention was adopted by a record number of member states, we can be impressed by the enthusiasm that the Convention has generated in every region of the world, fully represented here by more than 300 delegates to this gathering of experiences, ideas and projects to go forward.
