An article by President Xi Jinping on the protection and exchange of the Chinese culture, especially the Dunhuang culture, will be published Saturday on Qiushi Journal, a flagship magazine of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.
The article is the transcript of a speech by Xi, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, at a symposium at the Dunhuang Academy in August, 2019.
The article hails the Dunhuang culture as a result of the long-term cultural exchanges and mutual learning between Chinese civilization and other civilizations, and points out that the Dunhuang culture shows the Chinese nation's confidence in its culture.
It also emphasizes the need for advancing the study of Dunhuang culture to serve the joint construction of the Belt and Road.
Efforts should be made to further promote the Chinese culture, cultural exchanges between China and countries along the Belt and Road, as well as people-to-people exchanges, says the article.
