The visiting delegation – led by Sichuan Academy of Social Sciences (SASS) vice president Xiang Baoyun – would be joined by a galaxy of academicians from across India at the seminar to be held at the IMI-Kolkata.

The conference, to be inaugurated by China’s Consul-General Wang Xuefeng, will cover a wide range of subjects, including “Tagore: Architect of India-China modern cultural exchange”, “Can India compete with China in the global market?”, “Healthcare sectors of India and China” and “The impact of Sino-Indian cultural differences on tourism”, an IMI release said.
