Silk Road Development Focuses on Culture & Tourism

The famous Silk Road route continues to be a major topic, both internationally and within China. A recent expo wrapped up in Xi’an in China’s Shaanxi province this week, where participants highlighted development along the Silk Road economic belt and where several preliminary deals worth approximately $144 billion were signed. But this is more than just a business deal. Cultural exchange, historical preservation, and opening up the Silk Road to visitors from around the world are main goals. Lyu Jianzhong, Chairman of the Shaanxi Folk Museums Association, recently organized more than 30 Chinese artists to travel along the Silk Road, visiting 12 countries along the way, to promote cultural exchanges. These types of cultural, touristic, historical and educational exchanges are hoped to be the basis for the foundation of the new Silk Road.
