BEIJING - Exchanges between China and Turkey began more than 2,000 years ago as a result of the ancient Silk Road.

To commemorate 40 years of diplomatic relations between the People's Republic of China and the Republic of Turkey and to develop cultural ties between the two countries, events for the Year of China in Turkey are set to create the ambience of a new silk road.

With the theme of Charming China, Home of the Silk Road, activities will showcase colorful contemporary Chinese culture and modern China after the reform and opening-up.
