Amman, capital of Jordan, ushered in the "Second Sino-Jordan Silk Road Literature Seminar" on Oct 14. Pan Weifang, Chinese ambassador to Jordan, together with the chairman of Jordan Writers Association, a delegation of Chinese writers and nearly 50 literary celebrities attended the seminar.

The theme of the seminar is "New Silk Road for Literature". 10 writers from China and Jordan shared their insights on poems and literature along the Silk Road together, discussing the influence of Silk Road culture on Arabian countries and China.

Pan also delivered a speech at the seminar.

"2017 happens to be the 40th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between China and Jordan. Four decades have witnessed the development of our relationship and closer cooperation. The Chinese government is preparing to set up a Chinese Culture Center in Jordan to promote mutual understanding. The seminar will further our dialogue through literature and contribute to mutual culture development," Pan said.
