China Daily (USA) - - CHINA - By XIN­HUA in Chengdu

The 4th China-Aus­tralia Me­dia Fo­rum was held in Chengdu, Sichuan prov­ince, on Wed­nes­day, in­volv­ing of­fi­cials from China and Aus­tralia as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives from nearly 30 main­stream me­dia out­lets in at­ten­dance.

The fo­rum, co-hosted by China’s State Council In­for­ma­tion Of­fice and Aus­tralian News Chan­nel, fo­cused on the “me­dia’s role in pro­mot­ing China-Aus­tralia re­la­tions: op­por­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges”.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives at the fo­rum ex­changed views on me­dia co­op­er­a­tion and en­sur­ing the healthy and sta­ble de­vel­op­ment of re­la­tions be­tween the coun­tries.

Guo Weimin, deputy head of the State Council In­for­ma­tion Of­fice, said Chi­nese and Aus­tralian me­dia should re­port on each coun­try ob­jec­tively and ra­tio­nally to play a con­struc­tive role in ad­vanc­ing the strate­gic part­ner­ship be­tween the coun­tries.

The fo­rum has been held three times: in Syd­ney in 2006, in Guangzhou, Guang­dong prov­ince, in 2012, and again in Syd­ney in 2014, to pro­vide an im­por­tant plat­form in form­ing a mu­tual un­der­stand­ing of the me­dia’s role in China-Aus­tralia re­la­tions.
