With the aim of attending the Seminar for Press Officials and Journalists from Spanish-speaking Countries, organised by the Chinese International Publications Group Training Centre, a total of six Equatoguinean journalists left Malabo International Airport, on Wednesday 16th May, bound for Beijing, to attend the course which will take place from 18th May to 6th June in the Chinese capital.
On arrival at Beijing International Airport, on 17th May, the delegation was received by the First and Third Secretaries from our diplomatic mission in Beijing, Camilo Ochaga and Tiberio Edu Okenve.
The delegation, made up of journalists and reporters from the national media such as the Equatorial Guinea Institutional Web Page (www.guineaecuatorial.com), Equatorial Guinea Television, and the Ebano and El Lector newspapers, joined over thirty participants from nine Latin-American countries, who will take part in the Seminar for Press Officials and Journalists from Spanish-speaking Countries, organised by the Chinese International Publications Group Training Centre, which was founded in 1965.
The journalists will receive, in Spanish, training on the situation of press development, the basic structure of the journalistic institutions, and the concert of the work of journalism in China; together with matters relating to the establishment of a platform for exchange and mutual communication between Chinese and Equatoguinean professionals, in order to boost cooperation and development on both sides.
The same course, which will take place at the Hotel Xijiao in Beijing, will also serve to broaden knowledge of technology and the use of new methods in the dissemination of Chinese press content.
In relation to the matter of cooperation and development in the China-Equatorial Guinea journalistic sphere, the organisation of the course will invite two leaders from the Chinese media to present those on the course with the reforms and innovations to the traditional means of communication.
In addition, there will be an exchange with professionals working in the Chinese central communication media, such as Radio International China. With the intention of exchanging cultural experiences, visits and research in online news, the cultural sector and television channels will be organised, with the involvement of local press and media, and medium and small scale media organisations in the cities of Yinchuan, Guyuan and Wuzhou.
