    低碳网讯 The Cambodia Pavilion featuring the theme "Cultural Life in the City" today celebrates its National Pavilion Day.

    The pavilion's showcase is in accordance with one of the sub-themes of Expo 2010 "Blending of diverse cultures in the city" and is an epitome of Cambodia in different periods, Cambodian Minister of Commerce Cham Prasidh said at this morning's ceremony in the Expo Center.

    Visitors to the pavilion will learn about the country's cultural and historical heritage and splendid civilization, he said.

    Wang Chao, assistant commerce minister, said strolling around the Cambodia Pavilion is like touring the Angkor Wat temples. At the pavilion, visitors will touch upon the pulse of the country's progress, share its people's joy in their lives and experience their unique understanding and interpretation of "Cultural Life in the City," he said.

    The pavilion embodies Cambodia's emphasis on cultural heritage protection and it features three major historical periods: Angkor, Odong and Phnom Penh. They cover Cambodia from ancient times through today.

    Exhibitions include archeology, art and culture and feature beautiful landscapes and city living. Natural resources and tourism are also featured.

    Exhibits show traditional techniques for building royal monasteries, temples, roads, bridges, reservoirs and hospitals by ancient Cambodians in the Angkor Period.
