China will provide more support for the country’s religious communities in their international exchanges and communications, said Wang Zuoan, director of the State Administration for Religious Affairs.

Wang made the remarks at the 2011 national conference on religious work held in South China’ s Hainan Province on Monday.

The administration will actively support religious circles in China to promote the concept of religious harmony during the first World Interfaith Harmony Week, which has been recognized by the United Nations and will be held in the first week of February, Wang said.

Additionally, Wang said that the country is working to streamline the social security system to further benefit religious personnel.
