Chinese journalists vow to promote Tanzania in China

Posted by African Press International on September 26, 2007

Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) A leading Chinese journalist from Wen Hui Bao newspaper, Wang Lan, on Tuesday underscored the importance of building strong relations between journalists from the Asian country and their Tanzanian counterparts.

Senior editor Wang, speaking on behalf of seven senior media officials accompanying her, said in Dar es Salaam that the purpose of their trip was to understand and help further the bilateral relations between the two countries.

In addition, Wang said that the delegation was in the country to study the media landscape and try to build a bridge between media practitioners of the two nations.

In November 2006, there was a China-Africa Forum held in Beijing-China. After the discussions, what was agreed upon was the creation of good relations between journalists of the two continents so that the people of either side could get information that would strengthen our relations.

Thus this trip is partly implementing what was agreed in Beijing last year, she said.

Wang said that more efforts should be exerted to promote the tourism sector in order to attract many Chinese people to come and visit the continent.

Our tour has opened our eyes, especially after realising that Tanzania has many tourist resources and good infrastructure.

We promise that when we go back to our country we will promote Tanzanias tourism sector, she said.

The delegation, comprising editors and senior journalists, are in the country for a six-day tour that started on Monday.
