China is a multi-ethnic country. Following the significant changes in regional and political structures, a full set of issues concerning ethnic minorities have come about. Generally speaking, most of these problems exist because each ethnic group does not have mature vision to rationally understand their cultural differences. However, this will not have a disproportionately negative impact. Existing policies towards minority groups are suitable for the development of each and help to promote ethnic unity and integration. Although many foreign scholars believe that China`s implementation of these policies is assimilation in disguise, Professor Jin points to the example of the Korean minority group and how their culture is clearly carrying on.
At the same time, in addressing the question of the relationship between the Korean minority group and the Korean Peninsula, Professor Jin believes that the Korean minority group and the two Koreas must explore their common cultural resources. Furthermore, they should strive to utilize their maternal ethnic culture to promote the development of China and South Korea, China and the DPRK, and North-South relations, as well as to further promote the peace process on the Korean Peninsula and lay the foundation for the further stable development of Northeast Asia.
