The group interview was jointly held by Liu Yuzhu, Secretary of the Party Leadership Group of the State Administration of Cultural Heritage (SACH); Song Baozhen, Director of Drama Research Institute; Meng Guanglu, Vice President of China Federation of Literature and Art Circles; Wang Xiaojie, Director of Beijing Bureau of CCTV and Xia Yongmin, Director of China Radio International’s (CRI) West Asian and African Center.

How to tell Chinese stories to the world

When talking about cultural development and communication, the representatives all mentioned the importance of telling Chinese stories to the world in the right way.

For Xia, Chinese TV series have set a good example in terms of telling Chinese stories to other cultures. “For example, Chinese TV series ‘Beautiful Daughter-in-Law’ has attracted six million viewers in Tanzania,” he said.
