The work of Yan Fu, a well-known scholar and translator in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), is still relevant today, said Premier Li Keqiang while visiting Yan’s residence in Fuzhou, Fujian province on April 24.

The Premier said Yan, who was born in 1854 and died in 1921, was renowned for a global vision far ahead of his time and enlightened generations of Chinese by his translation of Western works. Every Chinese should study Yan and his works, he added.
