China's southwest Yunnan Province launched an exhibition in Pudong over the weekend to showcase its tourism, artworks and local specialties.

Eight ethnic prefectures of the province, including Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture and Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, will each hold a promotional week at the Himalayas Museum along with Yang Liping — known as "the Peacock Princess of China" — one of China's best-known dancers.

As a highlight, Yang will exhibit one of her most famous peacock dancing costumes, featuring the delicate embroidery that gained global popularity during the Spring Festival Gala of 2013.

"The exhibition aims to promote Yunnan products to Shanghai and then to Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and the global market," Wang Minzheng, director of the agricultural administration of Yunnan said.

"The promotion also aims to help the ethnic minorities of Yunnan break free from poverty and become rich," Wang told the opening ceremony of the exhibition, which will run through January 23, 2018 at the museum on 869 Yinghua Road.

The first batch of specialties being exhibited includes flower teas, cakes, nuts and various artworks from the Dali prefecture. Visitors can taste the treats and enjoy the art performances and decorations of Yang's team.

"Yunnan's highland products are good quality and low priced, but have long lacked proper exposure," Hua Zefei, the organizing director of the exhibition said. "The activity aims to create popular Yunnan brands and bring a special experience to Shanghai residents," he added.

The Yunnan exhibition runs until January 23, 2018 at the Himalayas Art Museum, 869 Yinghua Road.
