The race will start from the Beijing House of People’s Assemblies in Tiananmen Square on Tuesday. This action aims at building up co-operation between mass media of the two countries, delivery of reports on economic priorities, cultural interests, traditions in border districts. Chinese journalists who will visit several regions in Russia’s Siberia and the Far East are also expected to come to Russia in 2015.
This journalist trip designed for ten days is held within the Year of Youth Exchanges between Russia and China. Russia’s Federation Council upper house of parliament and the All-China Assembly of People’s Representatives supported this initiative. Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matvienko and Deputy Chairman of the All-China Assembly of People’s Representatives Permanent Commission Wang Chen will participate in the start ceremony of the media tour.
The name of motor race is conventional, as journalists will travel in China by aircrafts, trains and buses. Meanwhile, organisers would like to preserve a tradition of joint correspondent trips which were launched in 2006-2007 during national cross-years of Russia in China and China in Russia.
Leading Chinese newspaper Renmin Ribao (People’s Daily) is a mouthpiece of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China reflecting diversified life of the country with a population of 1.3 billion.
