China has always been in line with the neighboring foreign policy of "being good neighbors and partners with neighbors" and the foreign policy of "good neighbors, safe neighbors and rich neighbors" to get along with other countries in the world. As a comprehensive institution of higher learning located in the southwest border, Baoshan University shoulders an important historical responsibility, and has the obligation and responsibility to constantly develop and innovate in various forms and strive to contribute to the friendly exchanges and cooperation between the two countries. The "China-Myanmar Cultural Week" is the concrete embodiment of this idea.
