Tomorrow marks the final day of  a Chinese cultural week  under the theme “Chinese history and art at the service of Africa and the Republic of Congo” (July 11-15) in Congo-Brazzaville.

During the week, the Congolese journalists were offered a training on photography by photojournalists from the Chinese State News Agency Xinhua.

Similar initiative already took place in another African capital – Harare- in October 2010. Xinhua has operated in Zimbabwe since the country attained independence in 1980 and has over the years provided technical assistance to the media and facilitated trips for local journalists to China to broaden their knowledge about the world’s fastest growing economy.

In addition to the training, films on cooperation between the Republic of Congo and China, documentaries that have been produced by Xinhua staff in the Republic of Congo and the development projects that have been executed by China in the country were also scheduled to be broadcast during the week.

Earlier this year, the second issue of Xinhua Gallery under the theme “Africans in China” kicked off simultaneously in 18 African countries.

All in the photos in this post were taken from Forum on China-Africa Cooperation web site.
