The 7th China-Mongolia Media Forum
opened in Chinggis, Khentii province, Mongolia on Aug 18, with about 100
officials and journalists from China and Mongolia discussing and
initiating methods of accelerating media cooperation and exchanges
between the two countries.
Cui Yuying, vice director of the Chinese
States Council Information Office, highly praised the results the forum
has achieved in the past six years and explained that cooperation among
the two countries' media has played a key role.
She also encouraged the two sides to
continue telling each other's stories and spreading their respective
news to help the two peoples to know each other better.
B Galaarid, president of the Mongolia
Journalist Association, reviewed the cooperative progress achieved by
the two countries' media and hoped that this year's session will
generate even greater outcomes.
Ulaan, director of the Party Publicity
Department of Inner Mongolia, China, said in her speech that she hopes
the media of the two countries can report more both on country-level
issues, such as China-Mongolia-Russia economic corridor construction,
and on culture, ecological protection, and ordinary people's lives.
Experts and media representatives from both countries exchanged suggestions on future cooperation.
In August 2014, Chinese president Xi
Jinping promised to "invite 250 Mongolian media people to China in the
following five years" on his visit to Mongolia, which led to two
Mongolian delegations visiting Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin and some
locations in Inner Mongolia in 2015 and 2016, focusing on China's
cultural and green development
