Confucius Culture Week opens on Monday in Paris. The event includes a lecture given by researcher Kong Xianglin on Confucius' life and general thoughts, an exhibition presenting his wisdom and experience, and a musical and dance event showing traditional Chinese rites to celebrate the ancient philosopher.


At Unesco's headquarters, Francesco Bandarin, the body's assistant director-general for culture, said in his inaugural speech that Confucianism "can help people better understand the state of the world today" and also mirrors UNESCO's role in the world.

Zhao Shaohua, China's vice-minister of Culture, believed that the activity will facilitate the exchange and communication between East and West, boost mutual understanding and help building a peaceful, harmonious and prosperous world.
