Automobiles: A Catalyst for International Cultural Exchange and Collaboration
Automobiles, one of the greatest inventions of the twentieth century, embody the tremendous power of technology, bear the wisdom and passion of human innovation, and manifest mankind’s perseverance in self-challenge, improvement and actualization. China, an ancient country with a long history, cradles the world's largest auto market today. Promoting independent technology innovations, it is aiming to transform from an auto manufacturer of quantity to one of quality. While the rapid development of the industry nourishes the growth of automobile culture, the Chinese automobile culture is less developed than the industry and systematic researches are lacking. Beijing Auto Museum was founded with a core mission to research and disseminate the automobile culture. The Society of Automotive Engineers of China and China Association of Automotive Manufacturers have important research projects on automobile culture, which have been approved by the government authorities and of which the major tasks are commissioned to Beijing Auto Museum. 2016 marks the fifth anniversary of the founding of the museum, thus a good time for a structured review on the development of automobile culture. Through reviewing the exchange activities and popular science education programs of Beijing Auto Museum since its founding, we explore the ideas of “Automobiles as a Catalyst for Promoting International Cultural Exchange and Collaboration” and propose a plan for future studies.
