The Belt and Road Youth Friendship Exchange Program - Eurasian Media’s Trip to Guizhou was recently launched by People’s Daily Online in Guiyang, southwest China's Guizhou Province.

During their visit to a tea plantation in Gaozhai village, Guiyang, a group of journalists from 10 countries participating in the joint construction of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) showed great interest in Chinese tea culture and tea garden management.

Armenian journalist Paruir Siniavskii, who has visited China several times, was particularly fascinated by the beautiful large-scale tea plantation.

He said many tea houses in his country import tea from China.

Under the BRI, the economic and trade exchanges between Armenia and China have become closer. Chinese culture, especially tea culture, has gained more attention and recognition in Armenia, said Siniavskii.

As a province with a diverse ethnic population, Guizhou is particularly attractive to Siniavskii. He expressed his eagerness to learn and experience the customs and traditions of the ethnic minorities in Guizhou.
