Of late, the Chi­nese em­bassy in New Delhi has been or­gan­is­ing in­ter­ac­tive sem­i­nars with strate­gic com­mu­nity and think tanks, and fun games and con­tests. Re­cently, the em­bassy or­gan­ised a ta­ble ten­nis tour­na­ment for the diplo­matic com­mu­nity. A Chi­nese diplo­mat said that the pur­pose was “sim­ply to in­crease ex­changes and friend­ship”. The first Friend­ship Ta­ble Ten­nis Tour­na­ment had eight par­tic­i­pat­ing teams from the em­bassies of China, Bul­garia, Czech Repub­lic, In­done­sia, Kaza­khstan, Rus­sia, South Korea and Ro­ma­nia. Am­bas­sador Luo Zhao­hui now has an ac­tive Twit­ter pres­ence at @Chi­na_Am­b_In­dia. Zhao­hui wrote on Twit­ter: “My old friends, Am­bas­sadors of Czech, In­done­sia, Kaza­khstan and ROK (Repub­lic of Korea) also join. Great to see you all! Thank you for kick­ing off the tour­na­ment to­gether with me. Am­bas­sadors of Czech and In­done­sia also play in the tour­na­ment.”Post­ing a video clip of him play­ing the game with the Czech en­voy, Zhao­hui tweeted: “Great fun to play with my friend, H.E. Am­bas­sador Mr Mi­lan Hovorka! Who do you think is a bet­ter player :).”
