The 12th China Beijing International Cultural & Creative Industry Expo (ICCIE 2017 for short) will be held from September 11 to September 13 in Beijing. With the theme of “Language Technology and Human Welfare”, the International Language and Culture Forum, an important part of the First China Beijing International Language and Culture Expo (ILCE 2017 for short), will be held in the forums and meetings section of the “six in one” platform of ICCIE 2017. It is reported that over 100 experts and scholars from 20 countries will attend the forum.

The International Language and Culture Forum of ICCIE 2017 is sponsored by State Language Affairs Commission, organized by Beijing Foreign Studies University, and co-organized by Beijing Language Affairs Commission, Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press, the Commercial Press, iFLYTEK Co., Ltd., and the Lexicographical Society of China. The forum to be held at the Beijing Foreign Studies University on September 12 includes guests' speeches, keynote speeches and sub-forums, aiming at integrating the great strength of the international language and culture industry, making concerted effort to successfully hold the First China Beijing International Language and Culture Expo, and jointly propelling the prosperous development of language and culture.

The four sub-forums of the International Language and Culture Forum will focus on issues like language policy and language education, linguistic intelligence and its industrial development, reference books and cultural inheritance, and language rehabilitation and human health. The "Language Rehabilitation and Human Health" sub-forum, which will be held on the afternoon of September 11 at World People’s Palace Hotel, will explore new concepts, new categories and new representations which connect China and the world, successfully relate Chinese stories and spread Chinese voices to highlight the power and charm of language science and technology. It is expected to start a new chapter in promoting cultural and educational exchanges between China and foreign countries, science and technology development and human welfare.

The First China Beijing International Language and Culture Expo is supported by State Language Affairs Commission and China National Commission for UNESCO, organized by Beijing Language Affairs Commission, Confucius Institute Headquarters, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Beijing Sub-council, Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture, Beijing Language and Culture University, and Translators Association of China, and fully operated by Beijing Language Culture Association. It is intended to facilitate the international exchange of language and culture, spread and promote Chinese culture, boost the development of language and culture, and fill the gap that there is no language-themed exposition in China. Through exhibitions and displays, creative activities, forums, summit meetings and product promotion, ILCE 2017 will assemble cutting-edge thoughts, concepts, high-end technology and products of domestic and foreign language and culture to construct an important platform for cultural and information exchange, enterprise publicity, product promotion and project cooperation.
