The inauguration ceremony of the complete translation of the classic Chinese tale "Journey to the West" took place on Monday.

Boldbaatar said that he further intends to translate another masterpiece of Chinese literature "Dream of the Red Chamber" this year.

Published in the 16th century during the Ming dynasty and attributed to Wu Cheng'en, Journey to the West is one of the four great classical novels of Chinese literature.
