SINO-ASEAN relations have been remarkably progressive in every sphere, but particularly in the areas of economics, politics, languageand culture.

Cambodia has good relationship with China, leading the Kingdom to adhere to a one-China policy, and the communist nation of more than a billion people has become one of the biggest investors in Cambodia.

The Chinese language has attracted the attention of young Cambodians as the number of Chinese schools in Cambodia has mushroomed. In addit-ion, China has been focusing on young journalists from Cambodia.

Eight young Cambodians who work in areas related to the media will fly to China on November 3 to join a China-ASEAN youth camp. Two Lift reporters will also attend the workshop.

Nearly 100 young people from ASEAN countries will gather and learn from one another.

Nou Maneth Athana, a news presenter from the Cambodian Television Network who will attend the camp, says: “I expect to learn more about China in ASEAN’s context, in addition to the knowledge that China is a strategic friend of Cambodia.”

She adds that she will be able to share her experience with young people from ASEAN nations, and in turn will learn more about journalism from them.

China’s media is restrictive, and social media are not really open to young people, but the country is beginning to turn its eyes to working with young journalists from ASEAN countries.

According to delegation leader Lim Mora, deputy director of the Ministry of Education, the Cambodian delegates will learn about the development of China and how its media operates.

“The journalists will have the chance to meet one another, learn and communicate, and thus improve their profess-ion,” Lim Mora says.

The week-long workshop will be conducted in the provinces of Beijing, Nanning and Tianjin.
