The hosts have sent invitations to defense and military leaders, heads of international organizations and think-tanks as well as renowned experts of over 100 countries. The Chinese side will also host a young officers’ seminar, and multiple panel discussions and seminars during the forum.
The Beijing Xiangshan Forum is a top-level “track 1.5” security dialogue hosted by China. As the world is undergoing profound changes unseen in a century, the Chinese side holds the forum to fulfill its obligation as a major country and to provide a platform and an opportunity for different parties to exchange ideas, improve trust, manage differences and consolidate peace. The forum is also to contribute more wisdom and strength to safeguarding world peace and build a community of shared future. We welcome both Chinese and foreign media to cover the forum.
