Modern means of transportation, telecommunication and mass media have shorten the geografical distance of the world. The international community of years to be has grown to be no more than a globle village in which peoples of all nations experience inevitable cultural exchanges and clashes while seeking common development in a harmonious and respectful relationship.
I am with the view that in this modern world, the culture of any nation cannot develop in isolation and I believe that different cultures should learn from each other's strength to upset their own weaknesses. Of course, the culture of a nation must uphold its own distinctive national characteristics in its excessive exchanges with other cultures. Cultural exchange, I think, is by no means a process of losing one’s own culture to a foreign culture but a process of richening
each other's national cultures.
