The 2022 ASEAN Media Partners Forum, co-sponsored by the Central Radio and Television Administration and the government of the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, was held in Nanning, Guangxi, on Sept 15.

Nearly 180 Chinese and foreign guests from more than 70 media organizations and institutions in 17 countries engaged in a dialogue themed "Wisdom, Integration, Gathering".

The event helped promote media exchanges and cooperation between China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in more dimensions and at a deeper level. It is expected to help build a closer China-ASEAN community.

Lan Tianli, chairman of the region, and Yan Xiaoming, vice-president of China Media Group, attended the opening ceremony and delivered speeches. Deng Xijun, Chinese ambassador to ASEAN, and Gao Jinhong, assistant minister to the prime minister of Cambodia and ASEAN's designated secretary-general, delivered speeches via video links.

During the opening ceremony, China Media Group and ASEAN media organizations reached new consensus on cooperation. The Asia-Africa center of China Media Group will use its multilingual resources to attract talent from China and ASEAN, cultivate new media talent and build an incubation base for Generation Z online celebrities.

China Media Group's international video communication center will also strengthen its cooperation with ASEAN media by opening a column section, publishing important video news content of China and ASEAN and telling stories of China-ASEAN cooperation. At the meeting, the China-ASEAN media port and the Guangxi headquarters of China Media Group were officially inaugurated.

As an important part of the strategic cooperation between the two sides, the China-ASEAN media port will be built as a base of the media industry chain for ASEAN and form a new platform for regional international communication.
