According to the direction of “giving a good Chinese narrative and better communicating China’s message, and presenting a true, stereoscopic, and comprehensive China to the rest of the world”, this activity will focus on 9 overseas countries to carry out online thematic publicity activities, in order to publicize the cultural connotation of Jining that is widely concerned by overseas audiences, such as Confucian culture, canal culture, Water Margin culture, etc.

Jining, located in the southwest of Shandong Province, is the central city of Huaihai Economic Zone. Jining has profound cultural heritage, “the hometown of Confucius and Mencius” and “the City of Canal” are its important cultural name cards.

The fine traditional Chinese culture is the cultural root of the Chinese nation. Its ideas, humanistic spirit and moral standard are not only the core of Chinese’s thoughts and spirits, but also of great value in solving human problems. Wang Lei, deputy minister of Publicity Department of Jining municipal Party committee, said that Jining culture has deep inside information and rich connotation. It is hoped that this event will enable audiences at home and abroad to understand Jining, a famous historical and cultural city, realize the cultural connotation behind the city, tell the story of traditional Chinese culture, and promote cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries.
