Among the 24 members of the media delegation, 23 people visited China for the first time.
"I have been working in the media for about ten years. During this period, I visited many countries and it was my first time to come to China. Like many people from Coate d'lvoire, I did not know much about this country before. Many people think that China is big and relatively backward, but the trip this time totally changes my impression on China. I am really amazed by the development of the city, the sound environment and advanced technology, after visiting enterprises, industrial park and the city in China.", said a reporter of the delegation when visiting the glass town in Dalian.
"I'd like to make more people from Coate d’lvoire know Dalian and China through my pen and camera lens.", the reporter added.
China established diplomatic ties with Coate d'lvoire in 1983, and ever since then the two countries have further enhanced cooperation continuously.
Before visiting Dalian, the delegation listened to the lectures in Beijing, and also visited other cities including Shenyang, Panjin and Yingkou.
