06 May 2015

MINSK (BelTA) – Radio Belarus International has created a club of friends for Chinese broadcast. It is aimed at spreading information about the Belarus-Chinese cooperation in the international media space and promoting Radio Belarus' broadcasts in the Chinese language, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian state TV and radio company.

“It is important to tell the Chinese people about our country, about the bilateral cooperation and the joint projects. When we learn more about each other, we understand each other better. Our programs are also designed for those Chinese citizens who live, study and work in Belarus,” Chief Director of Radio Belarus Naum Galperovich noted.

In his words, the club of friends for Chinese broadcast should become a kind of coordination center uniting all the Belarus-China organizations that operate in Belarus.

The management board of the club will include employees of Radio Belarus and the Chinese Embassy in the Republic of Belarus, representatives of the Belarus-China Friendship Society, the Confucius Institutes, and the Chinese communities and student associations in Belarus.

Radio Belarus started broadcasting internationally in 1962. It offers programs in eight languages. The Chinese section is the youngest and the most promising one. The program Your Friend Belarus has been aired twice a week since 2013. The project features news bulletins and a section on culture and education about renowned Belarusian people, sites, and cultural traditions. The program pays special attention to the Belarus-China cooperation and the life of Chinese students and specialists in Belarus.
