Welcome Address from Henrianne de Briey,
President of World Federation of Rose Society
On behalf of our organisation I wish to encourage all rose lovers to attend our next Regional Convention in Nanyang, China from April 27th to May 1st 2019.
No doubt that we will have a great program with interesting lectures combined with many outstanding gardens and cultural visits.
Pre and Post tours will bring us to many famous gardens and scenic spots as well as to the World Horticultural Expo.
Nanyang is immersed in a fragrance of Rose: Rose avenue, Rose Garden,
Rose ornamental garden, Rose community, Rose courtyard … yes Roses in Nanyang can be found everywhere no matter in the city or in the countryside.
Nanyang has become China’s largest rose breeding base.
More than 100 000 people are engaged in the Rose industry and Nanyang has also made great progress on rose research, promoting the genus of Chinese roses.
Nanyang is not only a garden city but also a water city and has one of the best air quality ratting in China and is a real model of co-existence between human and nature.
Jade and horn carving are two mysterious but natural symbols of the Chinese culture that you will find in Nanyang but you will never forget that Nanyang is the HOMETOWN of the ROSE and moreover you will discover that Nanyang’s Rose has its own style in the Chinese rose family.
So let’s register and I hope to see many of you in Nanyang.
