"To carry forward traditional culture, we should be adept in its inheritance and innovation. Culture is a new economic driver as well as a spiritual strength. How to integrate the cultural resources with economic development, social and ecological construction is a vital issue we need to solve."

"Though Shandong enjoys abundant cultural and historical resources, it has not fully utilized its resources and converted them into development advantages. We need to change the status and make full use of rich regional cultural resources."
Kong added that Shandong should fuel the development of cultural innovation industry and strengthen cultural exchanges and cooperation with other countries and regions.
