Friendliness is a basic idea that runs through China’s core socialist values. A pro-exemplar culture and friendliness-centered values, being important parts of an advanced socialist culture, are inherently complementary. A pro-exemplar culture provides a good cultural environment, nutritious material and practical experience for reference for the cultivation of the friendliness-centered values. Friendliness-centered values further enrich the historical connotations of a pro-exemplar culture and lay the ideological foundation for people’s identification with, and guidance for, the promotion of a pro-exemplar culture. The promotion of a pro-exemplar culture will enhance the role of friendliness-centered values as a spiritual guide, their ability to radiate and their emotional influence, thus helping build a long-term mechanism for the cultivation of friendliness-centered values.
