This civilized event was personally initiated by President Xi Jinping.

In May 2014, the fourth summit meeting of the Asia Cooperation and Confidence Measures Conference was held in Shanghai. When President Xi Jinping spoke at the summit, he first mentioned the Asian Civilization Dialogue Conference:

“The Chinese side advocates the promotion of mutual understanding, mutual learning and mutual progress by different civilizations and different religions through the convening of the Asian Civilization Dialogue Conference.”

After less than a year, at the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2015, he again launched an initiative:

“The Chinese side advocates the convening of the Asian Civilization Dialogue Conference to strengthen exchanges between young people, civil society, local and media, and build a network of think tank exchanges and cooperation, so that Asian people can enjoy a more spiritual life and make regional development cooperation more dynamic.”

Why did President Xi Jinping propose such an initiative?

We can find the answer in his words. First of all, Asia’s own splendid history of diverse civilizations has laid a solid foundation for dialogue and exchange:

“In the long history, such as the Yellow River and the Yangtze River Basin in Asia, the Indus River and the Ganges River Basin, the Euphrates River and the Tigris River Basin, and Southeast Asia, many ancient civilizations have been born, complement each other and complement each other, and have made important contributions to the progress of human civilization. In today’s Asia, the characteristics of diversity are still very prominent. Different civilizations, different nationalities, and different religions come together to form a multi-colored Asian family.”

The deeper reason is that exchanges and mutual understanding have extraordinary significance for the prosperity and development of civilization and the progress of human society, which is beyond the geographical scope of Asia. President Xi Jinping has profoundly explained this in many international occasions in recent years:

Among them, an explanation that has the most memorable and significant impact on the international community comes from the speech of President Xi Jinping at UNESCO Headquarters in March 2014.

In this speech, President Xi Jinping explained in a vivid language the attitudes and principles that should be applied to different civilizations:

At the same time, President Xi Jinping also pointed out the “misunderstanding” in the process of mutual understanding of civilization:

Whether it is conflict or dialogue, confrontation or cooperation among different civilizations has become the “question of the times” of where human civilization goes.

Therefore, the Asian Civilization Dialogue Conference initiated and sponsored by the Chinese side has a distinct era significance – providing new ideas for answering the confusion of the times and showing the wisdom of the East and the mind of a big country.
