An Introduction of International Conference on

" Cultural Mission for the Development and construction of the

Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao

Greater Bay Area"

 

I. Theme
International Conference on "Cultural Mission for the Development and construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area"


II. Purpose
Culture is the spiritual carrier and civilization identity of every nation and country, which contains and displays specific human values. Since the emergence of human civilization, the coexistence and integration of cultures has enabled different ethnic groups and countries to understand and tolerate each other across the boundaries of time and space, and thus has always been the internal driving force that influences and promotes the progress of world civilization.

The uniqueness of Macao’s history has formed its special cultural ecology and form, and has accumulated a deep-rooted and rich cultural connotation. In Macao, on the one hand, traditional Chinese culture is deeply rooted, and on the other hand, multiculturalism based on Western culture is also widespread. The harmonious coexistence of Chinese and Western cultures has developed a unique human landscape and ecology with distinctive features characterized by being mutually inclusive and reinforcing. All this has made Macao a unique attraction and affinity, and also an example of cultural exchanges between China and the West, and the progress of human civilization.

This conference is based on the basic concept of multi-cultural coexistence, and the rise and fall of human destiny, with the theme of promoting the progress of world civilization and building a community of shared future for mankind, and the mission and purpose of building “develop into a base for exchange and cooperation where Chinese culture is the mainstream and diverse cultures coexist.”
