Against the background of building a community with a shared future for mankind and advancing the reform and construction of the global governance system, books are an important medium to tell China’s stories and contribute Chinese wisdom and strength to the rest of the world. Guided by this vision, ECNUP has worked hard to explore how Chinese books can be better promoted overseas and has made encouraging achievements in recent years.

Wang Yan, Director of ECNUP, considers thatApproaching Chinese Naval Ships Seriesis a high-quality work that showcases China as a responsible country. It depicts China’s naval development in the new era, extolls the heroes of the people, and expresses China’s pursuit for world peace and stability. For example,Peace Ark Hospital Shipis one of the series that best interprets the concept of building a maritime community with a shared future for mankind. Wang Yan also reveals that as the interest of overseas publishers in this series grows,  it will be translated into more languages in the near future. ECNUP will spare no effort to promote this series on the international market.
