Minister Hua reaffirms China's commitment to global development #rwanda #RwOT


Participants in the CIPCC program embarked on a comprehensive tour of China, visiting 12 provinces, including Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shaanxi, Sichuan, and Fujian. They experienced the country's diverse culture, history, and modern advancements. Key moments of the program included, visits to the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, leading Chinese companies, and participation in significant international forums, among others showcasing China's role in global cooperation and development.

Speaking at the closing ceremony, Hua Chunying highlighted that while four months may seem short, the journalists gained a rich and immersive experience in China. "I am sure you now know more about China than many foreign friends who have come to China dozens of times," Hua stated, welcoming graduates to feel at home whenever they return to China.

China is now considered a locomotive of global growth. According to the World Bank, from 2013 to 2021, China contributed 38.6 percent to global growth, more than the G7 countries combined. Hua emphasized that China will maintain its contribution to the global development landscape.

'Through your journey in China, you can see that China's high-quality development and high-standard opening up are closely linked to the world. China's development has and will continue to bring more opportunities for the world,' she stated.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of CIPCC. Since its inception, the program organized by the China Public Diplomacy Association (CPDA), has seen the participation of 620 journalists from 141 countries, evolving from a regional press center to a global initiative.

Also present at the event, was the CDPA President Wu Hailong who underscored journalists' role in countering untruthful stories.

He expressed optimism that with the deepening of participants' observation, knowledge, and understanding of China, they will continue to introduce the real China to their respective countries, regions, and the world.

"Western media write numerous untruthful stories that defame China and are self-defeating. The China story you tell will be more authentic, convincing, credible, and easily recognized and accepted," he added.

As the ceremony concluded, there was a sense of accomplishment and anticipation for future engagements. The journalists left with a deeper understanding of China, ready to share their experiences and foster global dialogue.

The closing ceremony took place at Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing.
