Jinan, capital of East China's Shandong province, was conferred the title of 2022 Culture City of East Asia at the 12th China-Japan-South Korea Cultural Ministers' Meeting on Aug 30.

The East Asia City of Culture program was first proposed by the cultural ministers of China, Japan and South Korea at the third ministerial conference in Nara, Japan, in January 2011.

The program aims to promote regional cultural diversity and increase mutual understanding among the three countries.

China's Jinan and Wenzhou, Japan's Oita prefecture, and South Korea's Gyeongju city were given the official certificates of the title at this year's ministerial conference.
