[Background of ICTIS 2015]

Chinese President Xi Jinping put forward the concept of Silk Road Economic Belt, aiming at further strengthening the ties and communications among European and Asian countries in his speech given in Kazakhstan in 2013. The cultural diversity of the countries along the Silk Road provides favorable foundations for the international cooperation in cultural industry. It is believed that a completely new Cultural Silk Road will prosper with the joint effort made by various circles.

The Silk Road (including the maritime Silk Road) was an important route for international commerce and trade linking Asia, Africa and Europe in history.

Dunhuang, long ago referred to as 'Sha Zhou' (beautiful desert oasis), was the hub of middle and eastern silk routes in ancient times.

In ancient times, Dunhuang was the center of trade between China and its western neighbors. With the flourishing of trade along the Silk Road, Dunhuang was prompted to become the most open area in international trade in Chinese history. It provided the only access westward for the Chinese Empire and eastward for western nationalities.

With the history of about five thousand years, Dunhuang has reserved many wonders which are indispensable culture heritages in China and the whole world. The Buddhism Art Treasury, the Mogao Caves, the Crescent Moon Spring, etc.

May to October is the best time to visit.
