With the enhanced influence of China and the full rejuvenation of Chinese culture, Chinese baijiu, a carrier of Chinese traditional culture, has encountered historical opportunities for speeding development and going global, said Liu Miao.
An outstanding Chinese national brand is a business card of Chinese culture, and it could play a unique role in promoting Chinese culture to the world, said Yin Yali, Director of the Center for Greek Studies of Beijing Foreign Studies University at the seminar.
