I was recently invited by China’s national television – CCTV, China Central Television – to comment on these two issues. The interviewer and cameraman came down to Lund from Stockholm and did a longer session. We all know that one does not get any longer time on such a regular news program anywhere in the world – so you plan small portions each with a theme and then something is selected and edited in Beijing and broadcast.
Here I speak about China Two Sessions, the very important people’s and experts’ assemblies that decide about the forthcoming year’s strategy and main political priorities; and
Here about the approach to bring an end to the violence in Ukraine and get on the road to peace.
It’s great fun to speak to hundreds of millions of people:
“China’s television industry has grown into a complete system with high-tech program production, transmission, and coverage. Altogether there are about 3,000 television stations across the country. CCTV (China Central Television) is the major state television station in Mainland China, with a network of 20 channels and accessibility to over one billion viewers. China has the most television viewers worldwide as well as the largest market for the same.”
