Bunbury and Jiaxing became Friendship Cities in 2000, initially drawn to each other as active port cities. Since then, the two cities have developed a strong friendship through exchanges in culture, business, education and sport. 

The exhibition features a selection of gifts presented to the City of Bunbury by the City of Jiaxing in the course of the 18 year partnership. The ritual of gift giving as a way of affirming and maintaining connections is intrinsic to Chinese culture. China possesses an ancient culture steeped in Confucianism— based largely on respect, relationships, and rituals—the purpose of which is maintaining harmony within one’s family, network of friends, colleagues, and society at large.

The exhibition celebrates the friendship between Bunbury and Jiaxing and offers a glimpse into the community of Jiaxing.
