Thirty press officers and media professionals from the Republic of Sierra Leone are currently benefiting from the 2019 Media Seminar organized by the Research and Training Institute (RTI) of the National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA) of the People's Republic of China.

Held at the NRTA Training Base, the training seminar provides African journalists an opportunity to deepen their understanding of China's radio and television industry, social and cultural conditions, enhance friendship, share experiences, and make positive contributions to the common development of China and Sierra Leone.

The seminar aims to build a platform of communication between China and Sierra Leone's radio and television peers to discuss new industry development.

The event was officially opened with a statement by Dr. Yan Chengsheng, Deputy Director General International Cooperation Department of NRTA. He underscored the importance of the media in nation building and added that the current event would further build the existing relationship between both countries.

"Looking ahead, the NRTA will continue to carry out in-depth information sharing and media cooperation with Sierra Leone, strengthen exchanges in content, industry and technology, continue to ensure two-way media research training, and help improve the level of media program production," he assured.

The National Radio and Television Administration is a ministerial-level central government agency directly under the State Council of the People's Republic of China, responsible for the administration and supervision of radio, television and online audiovisual programme services in China, as well as the promotion of industrial development.

Over the years, the institution has provided a platform for exchange and cooperation among media organizations in developing countries, and an international training curriculum and training mechanism, including teaching staff, have been established.

"I am happy to see that the two countries continue to enjoy deeper ties since 1971," says the head of the media delegation, Ms. Femi Coker, who added that journalists in Sierra Leone have benefited a great deal from China, for which they are very grateful.
