Chinese government on 28 February launched a ten-month deep exploration of Chinese culture programme aiming to promote exchanges and deepen cooperation between Chinese and South Asian, Southeast Asian and African media.
The programme, organized by Beijing International Chinese College, also aims to provide almost 50 media participants with a deeper understanding of Chinese language, culture, education, customs, cuisine and people’s livelihood as well as to promote exchange of culture and customs among participating journalists.
One day after the launch of the 2018 China Development Studies and Media Exchange Programme, the Global Journalism and Communication Master’s Programme on Belt Road Initiative was commenced.
Addressing the launching ceremony, Prof. Du Peng, Vice President for International Affairs and Alumni Development of Renmin University of China expressed his belief that the diversity of this programme will provide opportunity to 46 participating journalists from over 40 countries to share ideas and have new journalism experiences.
This is slightly deferent from those previous years because we also launched the Global Journalism and Communication Master’s Programme on Belt Road Initiative for 18 journalists who enrolled as full time students at the Renmin University of China which will be part of enhancing the relationship so that we can further strengthen mutual understanding between China and other parts of the world.
The programme is being implemented by China and South Asia, Southern Asia Press Centre and China Africa Press Centre in cooperation with Beijing International Chinese College and Renmin University of China. Both of them are top ten universities in China.
