 , Updated 18:32, 09-Jul-2024

The upcoming Nishan Forum on World Civilizations will host 400 guests from over 60 countries across the world, including Germany, Italy, Russia and Thailand, a local official said on Monday.

Academics, incumbent and former senior officials, and representatives of their respective countries' embassies in China were invited to the forum to discuss the inheritance and innovation of Chinese civilization and world civilization, Lin Haibin, deputy director of the Office of Foreign Affairs Committee of the Shandong Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), told a press conference.

The event is scheduled to be held in Nishan, a Shandong town where Confucius was born, on July 10-11.

Each theme of the Nishan Forum was meticulously designed to closely align with the pulse of the times and respond to contemporary concerns, said Guo Chengyan, Party secretary of the Nishan World Center for Confucian Studies, at the presser.

For instance, to address questions about humanity's future and how civilizations should coexist, one of the forum's themes is aimed at transcending civilizational barriers through exchange, overcoming civilizational conflicts through mutual learning, and surpassing civilizational superiority through inclusiveness, thereby jointly promoting the progress of human civilization, Guo said.


Nishan is a beacon of civilizational exchange and mutual learning, witnessing the interaction and integration of Chinese and world civilizations and standing as a high ground for the exchange and mutual learning of civilizations from China and abroad, said Xi Yanchun, deputy head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Shandong Provincial Committee. Today, a confident, open and inclusive Nishan has become an important platform for global intercultural dialogue and a crucial window for the world to understand Chinese culture, she said.
