Madame Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO,
Ladies and Gentlemen.
My warmest thanks go to all of you who have received us so generously here in Hangzhou, our Chinese hosts and our many friends from UNESCO.
I am honoured by your invitation, and pleased for this opportunity to talk about two subjects that are very close to my heart – culture and development.
