Delegations from 85 countries, five international organizations and 66 overseas 
institutions will attend the Silk Road International Cultural Expo in northwest 
China's Dunhuang City, Gansu Province from Tuesday.

According to deputy director of the expo Liang Yanshun, a summit conference, 
five sub-forums and five special forums will be held during the two days of the 
event to come up with constructive suggestions on cultural exchange and 
intergovernmental cooperation.

An exhibition of some 8,000 exhibits will be devoted to the cultural 
achievements of more than 60 countries along the Belt and Road. The expo is the 
only international cultural festival specifically for Belt and Road countries.

Gansu Province plans to sign 10 agreements with participating countries and 
international organizations, along with about 90 cultural cooperation 
agreements worth over 100 billion yuan (15 billion U.S. dollars).
