|The book Introducing the Chinese culture into Mongolia: A study on the Chinese workers' club on display at the launch ceremony on Dec. 4, 2019|
The inauguration ceremony of a book on the Chinese workers' club was held at the Chinese Cultural Center here on Wednesday to mark the 70th anniversary of China-Mongolia ties.
Entitled Introducing the Chinese culture into Mongolia: A study on the Chinese workers' club, the book is based on facts and documents that were previously unexposed to the public.
In the 1950s and 1960s, China sent large numbers of workers to Mongolia to help with the development of its infrastructure.
According to the book's authors, the Chinese workers' club or the Chinese Cultural Center at that time was responsible for protecting the interests of Chinese workers in Mongolia, meeting their educational and cultural needs and introducing the traditional friendship between the two peoples to Mongolians.
"We have organized a series of events for the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and Mongolia this year," said Khasbagana, deputy director of the Chinese Cultural Center in Ulan Bator, at the opening ceremony. "The publication of the book is one of the planned works by our center to celebrate the anniversary."
It is of great importance to bring historical truth to light, as well as to study historical relationships and cultural collaborations between the two countries, Tserentulga Tumenbayar, one of the work's authors, told Xinhua, noting that the book has been published in Mongolian and English.
Tumenbayar said she believes that the book will be a useful guide for anyone who is interested in Chinese culture and the cooperation between China and Mongolia.
At the ceremony, around 300 copies of the book were donated to several Mongolian organizations.
