In August 2009, President Lin Xiangxiong, under the encouragement and spur of his colleagues in the domestic cultural circles, formally established the Yanhuang International Cultural Association. In his founding speech, he emphasized: "Only by insisting on the inclusiveness of the world's diverse cultures, while each prospering the existing cultural system, and mutual respect for the multilateralism of the political system formed by the traditions, geography and culture of different ethnic groups, can we achieve success in the world. Only in a harmonious world can there be a day."
