A conference on Asian civilizations will be held in May in Beijing, Xinhua News Agency reported on Monday.

The purpose of the first Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations is to foster exchanges between Asian civilizations, learn from each other and establish a community with a shared future.

In 2015, when addressing the opening of the Boao Forum, President Xi Jinping proposed a conference to be held to promote dialogue among various Asian civilizations, boost regional understanding and enhance cooperation.

During the conference in May, delegates from different countries will exchange their views on multiple platforms. Media organizations, cultural and religious groups and NGOs will also join the conference.

The conference will have an opening ceremony and six parallel forums. Asian cultural carnivals, Asian civilization week and an Asian food festival will also coincide with the conference.

Leaders from Asia and elsewhere, directors from relevant international organizations and some delegates from cultural and humanity sectors will attend the conference, it said.
