China and Greece: Enhancing Cultural Understanding and Cooperation | Carnegie Tsinghua Center for Global Policy

Event Details

A clear understanding of China and Greece’s rich cultural heritages is vital to enhancing modern-day people-to-people exchanges and cooperation.

Both China and Greece enjoy centuries-old cultural heritages that respectively are important sources of Eastern and Western traditions. As people-to-people exchanges between China and Europe become more frequent, a clear understanding of how historical legacies influence contemporary soft power and cultural diplomacy is vital to strong Sino-European relations.

Carnegie–Tsinghua’s Zhang Lihua will host a panel discussion with leading Chinese and Greek experts on the potential of cultural exchanges between the two countries. They will examine how longstanding societal traditions affect prospects for Sino-Greek cultural cooperation.

This event is not open to media.
