East Asia should have stronger say in global arena: Chinese official


09:55, March 02, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, March 1 (Xinhua) -- East Asian countries should further promote media cooperation and the media in the region should strive to have a stronger say in the global arena, a senior Chinese official said Thursday.

Speaking at the 2nd Conference of the ASEAN Plus Three Ministers Responsible for Information (AMRI+3), Wang Chen, minister of the State Council Information Office of China, said East Asian countries should encourage international media to cover the region in a more objective and accurate manner.

"We must catch the trend of regional cooperation, report regional affairs from a local point-of-view and try to have a stronger say in the international arena," he said.

The conference, inaugurated by Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, involved ministers and senior officials responsible for information from 10 Asean Countries as well as China, Japan and South Korea.

The AMRI+3 conference shoulders the responsibility of boosting regional media exchanges and cooperation, promoting the participation and support of all social forces and fostering an atmosphere favorable for the building of a peaceful, prosperous and harmonious East Asia, said Wang.

Since the first conference held in Laos in 2009, media exchanges and cooperation between China and ASEAN countries, Japan and the South Korea have gained momentum, he said.
