China is a country of ancient civilization, culture and traditions. It is the world's most populated country and has the second strongest economy in the world. China plays a significant role in the conduction of contemporary cultural diplomacy between the country and the rest of the world. Due to its rich cultural heritage that has developed throughout 4,000 years of history,` the Chinese civilization is recognized as one of the four great ancient civilizations of the world, together with ancient Egypt, Babylon and India.
