Lunar New Year fuelled interest of Dutch media in China. So – after joining selected New Year’s receptions – we took the opportunity to discuss some of China’s cultural, political and social issues.
China Circle’s Ardi Bouwers was invited by BNNVara’s Na het Nieuws to shed a light on Chinese celebrations and on China’s rise. Host Renze Klamer invites a fresh batch of opinion leaders. Watch the 30-minute programme (in Dutch) by clicking this link.
BNR News Radio dedicated a full week of hour-long interviews to China in its Big Five-series, presented by Roelof Hemmen. Ardi was asked about her experience as a lecturer in Journalism and Communication at a university in Guangzhou. She also talked about a broad selection of subjects, ranging from Xi Jinping’s visit to her university, media narratives, censorship cultural differences, Chinese customers and the social credit system. A privilege to get the opportunity to participate in this in-depth series.
