He pointed out that the integration of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism in fine traditional Chinese culture helps promote the localization of Marxism in China. Against the background of world development trend, the fine traditional Chinese culture needs to play a key role in China's peaceful rise on the world stage, the CPC's self-revolution, and the construction of the global community of shared future, thus providing strong support for Chinese modernization.
