On May 19, 2017, Director-General of the Department of Latin-American and Caribbean Affairs of the Foreign Ministry Zhu Qingqiao held a discussion with journalists from the first phase of the project of China-Latin America Media Exchange Center.

Director-General Zhu Qingqiao welcomed Latin American journalists to work and study in China. Zhu Qingqiao expressed that establishing China-Latin America Media Exchange Center is an important initiative proposed by President Xi Jinping during his visit to Latin America last year, and the smooth implementation of its first phase in a short period fully demonstrates that both sides highly value China-Latin America relations, and have effectively implemented President Xi Jinping’s initiative. It is hoped that all journalists could make full use of the studying and exchanging opportunity in China to comprehensively and deeply understand China’s development process of reform and opening up, show China’s rapid and new development to Latin America and set up a bridge for Latin American people to know about China. Zhu Qingqiao briefed all journalists on China’s policies towards Latin America and the development situation of China-Latin America relations in various fields, and also exchanged views on bilateral cooperation in economy, trade and investment, Latin American countries’ participation in the Belt and Road international cooperation and other topics.

The journalists believed that China-Latin American Media Exchange Center is an important measure to advance bilateral people-to-people and cultural exchanges. The journalists felt deeply honored to interview and report the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation as soon as they arrived in China and will cherish this working and studying opportunity to make great efforts in contributing to mutual understanding and cooperation between Latin America and China.

The first phase of the project of China-Latin American Media Exchange Center was officially launched this May, and 11 journalists from 9 Latin American countries will work and study in China for six months.
