The State Press and Publication Administration of China has organized a series of cultural activities to commemorate the anniversary, cooperating with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Sports of Mongolia and the Mongolian national broadcaster.
More than 1,000 excellent books from China and Mongolia showcase in an all-round way the achievements of the publishing industry in the past 70 years since China and Mongolia established diplomatic relations.
The activities pragmatically demonstrated the broad prospects that China and Mongolia will further strengthen communication between the two countries through book publishing and cultural translation.
In the largest book fair jointly organized by the two countries, China and Mongolia have not only strengthened mutual understanding by jointly displaying fine books, but also further promoted the cultural exchange between the Chinese and Mongolian people.
This book fair reached a broad consensus with relevant departments of the Mongolian government on translating Chinese and Mongolian classic books.
Among the exhibition books, the books in foreign languages including Mongolian account for more than 50 percent. (Compiled by Xu Zheqi)
