At this critical new era of socio-cultural development stage, China, now one of the leading countries in economy, culture, and other major social aspects, is playing an important role in intercultural communication with the outside world, and virtually what are taking place in the process of communication and collaboration between Chinese culture and other cultures deserve due academic attention. Contributors are invited to address issues concerning related problems.
