This paper analyzes the influence of culture on China’s bilateral trade to show the influence of the construction of “Belt and Road Initiative” by using data of 11 Southeast Asian countries from 2000 to 2015. The results show that culture factors, common language, common policy institution and cultural intimacy have significant positive impact on bilateral trade, while distance shows the negative impact on bilateral trade. The various cultural factors have different degrees of impact on trade. Based on the findings, this paper pointed out that, in order to promote the trade development along the “Belt and Road” countries and to balance the trade surplus, we should vigorously promote the construction of cultural exchange platform among trade partners.
