Latin American media representatives visit Phoenix Group
Some 60 media representatives and journalists from Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America visited Phoenix Publishing and Media Group (PPMG) in Nanjing on Sept 8.
The visitors were attending a workshop organized by the State Council's Information Office of China, which was aimed at promoting exchanges and cooperation between state-owned media in China and Latin American countries. The participants were media representatives and journalists from 12 countries including Bolivia, Chili, Colombia, Cuba, Venezuela and Costa Rica.
Li Xue, vice-president of PPMG, briefed the visitors about the group and its international strategy at a welcome ceremony. He said Latin America is an important market for PPMG’s going-global strategy and hoped that the workshop would contribute to bilateral cooperation in more fields.
The visitors first watched a PPMG-produced documentary on the Great Wall and then visited its subordinated publishing houses and bookstore.
During the visit, the participants showed interest in PPMG's export-oriented publishing programs and wanted to purchase some books. A participant from Chili commented favorably on PPMG's influence in international publication, and hoped all members could continue to promote bilateral cooperation.
