China is a multi-ethnic country where various ethnic groups have, over a long history of interaction, learned from and influenced one another, gradually forming common cultural traditions and lasting memories. This profound integration has facilitated mutual understanding and identity among ethnic groups.

Concurrently, the ethnic groups in China are mutually interdependent in various aspects such as economy, politics and society, forming a closely interconnected community of shared interests. China's ethnic policies encourage mutual support and assistance among ethnic groups, jointly promoting the common progress of all ethnic peoples in the nation.
