The third China Traditional Village Qiandongnan Summit opened in Guizhou province Saturday.

The third China Traditional Village Qiandongnan Summit was held in Yingshang village, Xijiang town, Leishan county, Guizhou province from Nov 25 to 26.

The summit, themed on “protection, inheritance, development — the sustainability of traditional village resources”, and following the five principles of “innovation, harmony, inheritance, openness and sharing”, sets out to motivate development in the vitality of traditional villages in China and help poverty-stricken villagers live a well-off life.

Feng Jicai, vice president of the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles and manager of the Chinese Traditional Village Protection and Development Expert Committee, said he believes protecting cultural inheritance in traditional villages is conducive to the inheritance of traditional Chinese culture. Also, it is of far-reaching historical significance to the upgrading of China’s national cultural soft power and international competitiveness. He hoped organizers will continue to promote the summit in an open and pragmatic manner by pooling the wisdom and strength of all parties and making new contributions to promote the sustainable development of traditional villages through the tackling of difficult issues.
