Lu claimed the Italian office, aiming to enhance the cultural exchange between China and the western world, will publish books that introduce Chinese culture, art, tourism, education and other aspects and reflect contemporary Chinese value, the essence of Chinese cultural thoughts, China-Italy relations, China-Europe relations, China-Italy and China-Europe ideology and culture through further understanding of the requirements of Italian, European and worldwide readers. In this way, different civilizations can learn from and add colour to each other. Meanwhile, the Italian office will keep following the development dynamic of Italian, European and world culture and art, integrate different resources, collect materials worldwide, and publish Chinese, Italian and English books and academic journals of culture and art. Besides, the Italian office will hold exchange activities about Chinese and overseas publishing as well as culture and art, and carry out training programs about culture, art and languages.
