In the opening ceremony, Vice President Wu mentioned that the Agency of Corrections was established on January 1, 2011 by the Ministry of Justice and led our corrections step into a new era. With limited manpower, the Agency of Corrections kept promoting educational culture and skills training programs which obtained outstanding achievements. This exhibition presented exquisite and diversified works, showing the mental revolution of prisoners and appealing to all kinds of people to accept these rehabilitated people and make the society more peaceful. Minister Luo stated that correctional institutions not only produce popular self-made products, but work with private enterprises to offer tens of thousands of job opportunities.

It is expected that this activity can make us become more willing to help these rehabilitated people integrate to the society. To show the gratitude, care and attention of all societal circles toward correctional institutions’ education culture activities.
