A consulate is a diplomatic representative agency of a country in other countries or cities with established diplomatic relations. On behalf of a country, a consulate is appointed by the embassy as the representative to maintain and develop the relations between both countries. The consulate is like a display window to show its unique cultural charm in China. The comprehensive development of China's friendly relations and cooperation with other countries is based on China’s principles of equality and mutual benefits. China has been actively developing the multi-level, wide-ranging and comprehensive cooperation with many countries with fruitful results. Furthermore, the youth is a particularly important role to promote China's friendly and cooperative relations with foreign countries. Making full use of Home and Abroad News Press’ unique positioning strategy and competitive advantages, “Home & Abroad News Press Junior Journalist Delegation” is sending the future journalists to a series of exclusive interviews with foreign diplomats and consulate envoys.
