BEIJING, May 20. /ITAR-TASS/. CEO of Russian state-owned news agency ITAR-TASS Sergei Mikhailov has met Director-General of China Radio International (CRI) Wang Gengnian and participated in an interactive conference replying to questions of Chinese Internet users in the Chinese city of Shanghai on Tuesday.
ITAR-TASS, the CRI and the World Association of the Russian Press (WARP) are co-organizers of the 16th WARP Congress which brought together more than 200 participants from 43 countries on these days. The WARP Congress is being held in the People’s Republic of China for the first time and is timed to coincide with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to the city of Shanghai.
ITAR-TASS is developing actively co-operation with Chinese news agency Xinhua, newspapers Renmin Ribao and Guangming Ribao and other Chinese media, Mikhailov said. The whole scope of large-scale projects is implemented with the CRI, for instance, motor races of journalists in Russia and China and the contest titled “To Russia with Love: Chinese Sing Russian Songs”.
The ITAR-TASS CEO noted importance of work with Russian and Chinese young people who inherited friendship of Russians and Chinese. He also dwelt on development of modern information technologies and the need for co-operation in this sphere.
