Ⅰ. Background of Activities:
Culture is the bloodline of a nation and the spiritual home of the people. Since the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping has put forward in a broad vision: consolidating cultural confidence and raising the level of cultural opening up is an inevitable requirement for promoting the great development and prosperity of socialist culture and building a strong socialist culture in China. With cultural communication as its main method, we consolidate cultural confidence and raise the level of cultural opening up to strengthen national soft cultural power, win the initiative in the international competition of overall national strength and eventually realize the great Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.
As one of the great ancient civilizations, China has more than 5,000-year traditional culture and a long civilized history. The rich and colorful cultural resources, especially the ethnic and folk cultural resources can be counted as an advantage for China to develop cultural diplomacy. Since its reform and opening up, China has witnessed a rapid improvement of its overall national strength and international status. Such achievements prompt the world to know more about China and understand the country through different perspectives.
To this end, with the help of the unique platform of global embassies in China, we organize foreign diplomats to China who represent respective nations and countries to learn deeply about China with unique perspective. We aim to further strengthen introducing China to the world and enhance cultural communication, develop new model for bringing Chinese culture outside, enhance the international competitiveness of China’s cultural industry, expand the international influence of Chinese culture, maintain national cultural security, and make more contribution to the progress of human being.
With the full support of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the People’s Republic of China, Cultural Exchange Organization of Presenting China to the World finally defines its theme as "The Most Beautiful China". We are an official organization aiming to carry forward excellent culture of the Chinese nation, speed up prosperous development of cultural programs and promote cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries. We also make efforts to enhance friendships and exchanges between people around the world, advance international exchanges and cooperation on economy and trade, and secure a greater say for China in international affairs.
