The elected city will carry out diverse cultural activities in the name of Culture City of East Asia. Through exchanges and cooperation in various fields, the city will actively participate in regional cultural cooperation in East Asia, promote cultural construction, and extend international visibility.

As part of a joint activity by China, Japan and South Korea, the East Asia City of Culture program was first proposed by the cultural ministers of the three countries during the third ministerial conference in Nara, Japan, in January 2011.

Since being launched in 2013, 18 cities from the three countries have been designated as Culture City of East Asia.

China's Culture City of East Asia in recent years was Ningbo from Zhejiang province in 2016, Changsha from Hunan province in 2017, Harbin from Heilongjiang province in 2018, and Xi'an from Shaanxi province in 2019.
