CHENGDU, Oct. 10 (ZXS) -- "How to abandon the thinking that has been centered on paper media in the past and embrace new technology is a common challenge faced by many Chinese-language media. I look forward to exchanging experiences and summarizing my peers. Wu Xindi, editor-in-chief of Singapore's Lianhe Zaobao, said in an interview with China News Agency.

On October 10, guests from home and abroad attending the 22th World Chinese Media Forum arrived in Chengdu. In an interview with the China News Agency, they said that they look forward to strengthening communication and exchanges with media colleagues during the forum, learning from experience and seeking common development.

"At present, Chinese media in the United States are mainly facing the challenges of digital transformation and lack of media talent." Jiang Qiguang, director of the Americas China Daily, said that he hopes that through the World Chinese Media Forum, Chinese media from different countries and regions can keep abreast of China's cutting-edge media information and expand their "circle of friends".

According to Xu Zishu, director of Madagascar's China-Africa Daily, the World Chinese Media Forum is like a bridge, not only connecting Chinese media around the world, but also allowing dialogue and exchange between different cultures. "We hope that through the forum, we can understand modern China and developing China. This is my first time in Sichuan, and I will write down what I see and hear with my pen, so that everyone can understand the new development of Sichuan and even the whole of China. ”

Yang Wenkai, president and editor-in-chief of Japan's Chinese Herald, said that the rapid development of information and communication technology has brought about rapid changes in the media industry, and it is his focus to discuss with Chinese media from all over the world how traditional media can seek their own breakthroughs in the wave of technology.

Ellen Shao, director of European Chinese-language Radio, also looks forward to the collision of ideas brought by the forum, she said that at present, people's access to information is becoming more and more diverse, and traditional media must not only maintain their credibility and seriousness, but also need to adapt to the reading habits of the audience and market trends.

"Founded in 1993, we have experienced a period of rapid development of print media, and also encountered new opportunities and challenges in the Internet era." Xiao Ziyi, chairman of Australia's Queensland Chinese Business Weekly, hopes to discuss issues such as the introduction and training of talents in the industry and the future focus of media integration development.

Nan Gengjun, director of the African Overseas Chinese Weekly, focuses on the topic of Chinese culture, saying that Chinese media is an important carrier for disseminating Chinese culture, and in Botswana, the charm of Chinese culture is attracting more and more local people to learn Chinese. He hoped that the Chinese-language media would help young people of Chinese descent deepen their understanding of their ancestral country and Chinese culture, and become a window for people living in the country to experience and understand China.

Wu Min, director of Italy's "Euro Times", said frankly that he wanted to hear the experience of his peers about how Chinese media tell about China's development in a way that is easy for local people in their home countries to understand.

The 23th World Chinese Media Forum will open on 59 July, with nearly 300 Chinese media representatives from <> countries and regions on five continents conducting dialogues and exchanges on the theme of "Integrating China and Foreign Countries and a New Chapter". (End)
