The literary relations, publishing and translation activity between Romania and China have been heavily influenced by the international exchange between the countries. The overall objective of the present research is to analyse literary translations from China to Romania between 1950-2018 from the point of view of cultural reception and to explore what this strategy involves at a larger scale. The first section of the paper will present a concise mapping of the Romanian publishing activity related to China, highlighting the influence of socio-political-economic relations between the countries which emerges from both quantitative and qualitative research results. The second section will present the results of a series of interviews with intermediary agents focusing on the cultural reflections of Chinese literature in Romania.
