BEIJING — A foreign expert symposium on the China Book International (CBI) project was held on Aug 20 in Beijing to pool wisdom on how to share China’s experience of reform and opening-up with the world.
The event was attended by experts and scholars from research institutions and publishing houses from China and abroad.
Four senior publishers from the Peter Lang Publishing Group, Sage Publishing, Springer Nature and Paths International Ltd. were employed as CBI foreign experts at the event.
“We hope both domestic and overseas publishers will continue their focus on, support, research and precise interpretation of China’s reform and opening-up, and publish more high-level academic works that reflect the reality of China and are of world significance,” said Jiang Jianguo, deputy head of the publicity department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening-up.
“China’s experience and wisdom have injected fresh air into world governance ... China’s practical experience in reform and development should be turned into more academic works and elevated to norms and theories as China’s contribution to the world’s social sciences,” said Cai Fang, vice president of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
The CBI project aims to provide overseas readers with the latest Chinese publications.
