The project, approved by the Publicity Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China back in 2014, is recognized as the only journalism funding program under the Belt and Road Initiative. Tsinghua University Press has won this funding for four consecutive years.
Accordingly, priority has been given to domestic publishing units that sign agreements with their counterparts along the Belt and Road, as well as to publications originally in Chinese that need translating into foreign languages.
The project also highlights China-related works by overseas sinologists, translators and writers, particularly those in the languages of countries and regions along the Belt and Road.
A total of 324 publications from 130 publishing houses across the country received the funding.
