China travelogue showcases China’s historical, cultural and technology development to media

Qingdao, China -- A media event dubbed “Travelogue of China” was staged to teach foreign journalists about China’s historical and cultural legacy, the development of modern technologies, and the high-quality development achieved by Chinese cities.

The “Travelogue of China” event is launched in Qingdao in east China’s Shandong province.

Some 30 journalists from the Asia-Pacific region and Central Asia attended the opening ceremony in Qingdao city, in east China’s Shandong province, on Monday.
The event, which took place from May 21-23, serves as a bridge connecting China and the rest of the world, said a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China’s (CPC) Qingdao Municipal Committee, Mr Zhang Xinzhu.
President of the China Public Diplomacy Association, Mr Wu Hailong, said the event enabled foreign journalists to discover the real China and express what they see and hear through their reports to showcase an all-round and vigorous image of China in an objective manner.
Deputy Director of the Cyber Communication Bureau of the Cyberspace Administration of China, Mr Chen Renze, said journalists are an important force in building close contacts between people.
“We hope that through this event, the visiting journalists can foster mutual understanding between China and the rest of the world,” Chen said.
Journalists were able to visit various provinces in China and learn about China’s historical and cultural inheritance as well as modern scientific and technological developments.
During their three days in Qingdao, the group gained an in-depth understanding of what makes the city great, including its beauty, its natural resources, and the stunning cultural heritage of northern China.
Qingdao is also an important coastal city, a seaside tourist destination, an international port, and a famous historical and cultural city.
During their stay in Qingdao, the journalists visited the China Movie Metropolis, the Qingdao Film and Television Base, the Tsingtao Beer Museum, took a boat trip with a light show, and went to the offices of CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co., Ltd. - the birthplace of the Fuxing High-speed EMU, the fastest train in the word.
They also toured the Qingdao China-SCO Local and Trade Cooperation Demonstration Area, the Pearl International Expo Centre, the Jiaozhou Bay Bridge and the Haier Exhibition Centre, and went to Laoshan Mountain.

Over the next three days from May 24-26, the group is touring different areas in Weifang City in Shandong province to learn about the cultivation of vegetables, and the production of vegetables for sale in the domestic market and for export by local companies, using new technologies. Visits to high-tech agricultural facilities, and traditional cultural and historic sites are also on the itinerary.
The Travelogue of China International Media Communication Activity was co-sponsored by the China Public Diplomacy Association and Global Times Online, aiming to tell vivid Chinese stories and popularise an authentic image of China by inviting foreign reporters to visit various provinces in the country.
