The Palace Museums based in Chinese mainland and Taiwan will, for the first time, jointly hold an exhibition to showcase cultural relics of Qing Dynasty (1644-1911)on Wednesday in Taipei.

The Beijing-based Palace Museum and the Taipei-based Palace Museum will put on show 246 historical documents, pictures and other articles related to Emperor Yongzheng (1678-1735).

Zheng Xinmiao, president of the Beijing-based museum, said the first joint exhibition was a fruit of the cooperation between the two museums.

Chou Kung-shin, director of the Taipei's museum, said the exhibition, which has been prepared for only about seven months, was long anticipated by the people on both sides.
