As a highlight, a keynote seminar held on Sept 22 invited TCM masters, famed scholars, scientists and professors to discuss the preservation and development of TCM. An Jianbo, a head from the health committee of Xingtai city, said that "Bian Que TCM culture is an enormous cultural and spiritual treasure left by our ancestors, and we are obligated to inherit and develop it well." He suggested that Xingtai city should take this opportunity to expand the cultural influence of Bian Que culture and better inherit TCM, to serve people's health.
