A "Media Leaders' Summit for Asia" was held in China's Hainan Province recently.
Media from around the world have signed bilateral and multilateral agreements in China's Hainan provincial capital, Haikou, to promote cooperation and mutual development.
Over 300 representatives from around the world, including more than 140 media leaders from over 40 Asian countries and regions, and 44 African and Asia Pacific journalists, attended the event.
The theme was "A New Era of Media Cooperation in Asia: Interconnectivity and Innovative Development." Dubbed the "Media Leaders' Summit for Asia," the signing took place a day before the opening of the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2018.
The Summit comprised four panel sessions: "Media Exchanges and Cooperation for Assistance in Building a Community of the Shared Future," "Building One Belt, One Road and New Opportunities for International communications," "40 Years of Reform and Opening-up: China Development and Global Opportunities," and "Kaleidoscope of Asian Cultures: Exchanges and Mutual Knowledge."
