The Dr. & Mrs. Hung Hin Shiu Museum of Chinese Medicine lent support to the Chinese Medicine Museum at Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM) and its Volunteers Association in organising the 2nd BUCM Lecture Contest which came to a successful close on 11 March in Beijing.  With the theme of “Aromatic Culture of the 10 ASEAN Member States”, the competition not only put the presentation skills of the contestants to the test, but also challenged their knowledge of the culture of fragrant herbs and spices originating in the East and its influence on traditional Chinese medicine.  Addressing the audience at the event, Professor Zhao Zhongzhen, Associate Dean of the School of Chinese Medicine, remarked that the purpose of the competition this year was to shed light on the strong ties and vibrant cultural exchange between Chinese medicine and other traditions along the Belt and Road, as well as the far-reaching significance of Compendium of Materia Medica in the study of bencao.
