Last Friday, the United Nations marked Chinese Language Day. CGTN's Liling Tan reports in Mandarin on the growing interest in the Chinese language at the UN, and what it tells us about China’s increasing visibility on the global stage.
April 23 marks the World Book Day, an annual event designated by the UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. CGTN host Ji Xiaojun reads “Sonnet 18,” one of Shakespeare’s best known sonnets. Ji is the host of CGTN’s cultural program “Crossover” and “Icon,” and a laureate of the Golden Microphone Award, China’s top accolade for hosting.
