The Diplomat also highlighted that under the framework of the Forum on China Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) and the Belt and Road initiative, the People’s Republic and the continent have developed very productive and practical cooperation in many areas, bringing substantial benefits to both Chinese and the African people.

Activities lining up include the second Belt and Road Forum for International cooperation and the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2019.
According to Ambassador Hu, CAPC and CAPPC 2019 Fellows will also ‘visit government departments, think tanks, universities and companies to interact with government officials, experts and the people of China. He also added ‘You will also go to provinces and cities outside Beijing to learn different regional cultures of China’.
Addressing Diplomats, 2019 Fellows and the local media at the Diplomatic Residence Compound in Beijing, Ambassador Hu Zheng Yue urged African journalists and journalists from Asia Pacific to help facilitate a clear understanding of the friendly exchange between their respective countries and China by reporting the facts.
CAPC has now entered its fifth year while this is the third year that journalists from the Asia Pacific are joining the program.
