Cooperation in the fields of journalism, communication and education plays an important part in constructing the Asian community of shared future, said Guo Weimin, vice minister of the State Council Information Office (SCIO).

Guo made the remarks in aspeech delivered at the Forum for Asian Deans of Journalism and Communication in Shanghai on November 30. Sponsored by the SCIO and organized by the Shanghai International Studies University (SISU), the forum was held in the international metropolis from November 28 to December 1.

The vice minister first expressed his sincere welcome to all the participants and outlined the theme of the forum, namely the "New Media, New Asia: The Role of Journalism and Communication in Constructing the Asian Community."He compared the forum to conforming to the trend of Asia's innovative development, reflecting the changes of media structures as having a practical and long-term significance in Asian journalism and communication.

Guo highly praised Chinese President Xi Jinping's keynote speech delivered at the Boao Forum for Asia in 2015. He said that Xi's explication on moving towards the Asian community of shared future demonstrates the Chinese leader’s great foresight and vision and their courage to take on responsibilities.

"Asia has more than 60 percent of the world’s population and boasts more than 30 percent of the world aggregate economy. In the overall downturn of the world economy, Asia has become a leader in current world economic development and one of the most potential areas in the world," Guo said.

Guo cited an old Chinese saying – "the fire burns high when everybody brings wood to it," adding that only by adhering to win-win cooperation and seeking common development can Asia achieve lasting peace and prosperity.

He gave a detailed explanation of the topics to be discussed by the participants at the forum and outlined the discussion points encompassing the important role of journalism and communication in promoting the construction of the Asian community of shared future; study the opportunities and challenges brought by new media to Asian journalism and communication; and find ways to strengthen exchanges and cooperation between journalism and communication schools of Asian countries.

Speaking of the Belt and Road Initiatives, Guo said that China hopes the countries along the route will promote mutual understanding and cooperation in Asian journalism and communication. He put forward three proposals for the participants in this regard; to enhance the sense of responsibility and goals to promote the development of Asian cooperation; to play a role of bridging ties and promoting the friendship between the peoples of Asia; and to deepen the exchanges and cooperation in the fields of journalism and communication education in Asia.

In his concluding remark, Guo praised the SISU, saying that itis the first foreign language university established in China and it has made a great contribution to training professionals for the country's international exchanges and cooperation. He expressed his heartfelt thanks to SISU's teaching and administrative staff involved in the preparation of the forum of this session.
