HEFEI, Oct. 13 (Xinhua) -- The sixth annual conference of the Taihu World Cultural Forum kicked off in Bengbu, east China's Anhui Province Tuesday.

Themed "Mutual learning among civilizations: Jointly building a community of a shared future for humanity," the China-initiated forum offers a platform to promote dialogue and exchanges between different cultures.

Some 500 delegates from more than 30 countries and regions gathered online and offline to discuss cultural diversity, the Belt and Road Initiative, pandemic prevention and control, and poverty alleviation.

The Taihu forum is notable because as Bengbu links China's north and south, this forum links China with the world, noted Romano Prodi, a former prime minister of Italy, in a video speech at the event.
