In the face of the current severe and complex situation of epidemic prevention and control, in order to build a solid barrier for epidemic prevention and control while stabilizing the economy and to efficiently co-ordinate epidemic prevention and control with the development of industry enterprises, Beijing Municipal Radio and Television Bureau, through the BA2022 online pavilion, has pushed the ‘Made in China’ of the broadcasting industry to the world stage while giving the world more opportunities to see Chinese broadcasting technology enterprises through the perspective of development.
‘The high-quality development of the broadcasting technology industry requires the integration of different innovative elements, the crossover of different disciplines, the sharing of knowledge and information, the interaction between academia and the market, the international cooperation, collision and exchange among multiple cultures.’Wang Jiequn, Secretary of the Leading Party Group and Director General of Beijing Municipal Radio and Television Bureau, said during a video exchange with the head of the BA2022 Organizing Committee on the first day of the exhibition, ‘Beijing Municipal Radio and Television Bureau attaches great importance to international communication capacity building and takes the initiative to enhance international communication capabilities. Taking branded activities as a grip, we have made full use of a variety of foreign exchange channels and event platforms, both domestic and international, within and outside the industry, as well as government and private sectors, to continuously accelerate the pace of ‘going global’ for Beijing’s broadcasting technology enterprises.
