At the dinner, the guests exchanged views on the development of the arts and cultural industry as well as the achievements of Takung AE.  Hong Kong has all along been a major hub for disseminating Chinese culture.  After the return of sovereignty, Hong Kong enterprises have more room for development and upward mobility with the support of the state macro strategy planning.  As an online artwork trading platform headquartered in Hong Kong with global presence, Takung Art is successfully listed on the New York Stock Exchange five years after incorporation, which was marked a success.

At the dinner, Takung AE expressed its heartfelt gratitude to friends and partners for their long-term support and partnership.  The support and encouragement from the guests at its inception in September 2013 have motivated Takung AE to move forward and sail through difficulties.  Looking ahead, Takung AE will continue to uphold the principle of “Art without borders”, dedicate itself to creating a global artwork online trading ecosystem, endeavor to establish a world-class cultural exchange platform and promote the exchange and cooperation of cultural works and cultural projects of the globe in cross-strait four regions.
