China International Publishing Group (CIPG), a multi-language publishing house headquartered in Beijing, on Monday called for more literary works from both home and abroad focusing on epic stories about the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

The group revealed the plan on the sideline of the "21st Century Maritime Silk Road Forum on Literary Development", held in Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province.

According to Lu Cairong, CIPG's vice president, the BRI is a great vision that has made huge achievements with the support of the countries involved. Therefore, literature reflecting the vision should play an indispensable role in its further development. 

Zhang Zhigan, vice president at the Guangdong Writers Association, said, the forum had profound implications, serving as a bridge between literary figures from countries and regions involved in the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.

He called on all literary societies in neighboring countries to strive to ensure a promising future for literature by learning from each other, sharing opportunities and facing challenges together.

The one-day forum, attracting guests from 15 countries and regions, such as Cambodia, Austria and Egypt, launched "The Proposal for 21st Century Maritime Silk Road Literary Cooperation" at the closing ceremony, stressing open and inclusive principles as well as joint efforts and mutual benefits.
