The Third “Belt and Road” Short Video Competition has began since June and currently it is on the final stage. As the entries are posted on social media with the tag #WordKaleidoscope, you may vote for your favourite ones on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and TikTok.
This year, a number of divisions including Africa, America, Europe, Southeast Asia, Central Asia and etc will be introduced. StarTimes has become the media partner of this competition and will use its own media platforms and localized resources to provide strong support for the promotion of the event in various regions across Africa.
Organized by China Public Diplomacy Association, the News Center of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) of China, and Global Times Online (Huanqiu.com), the event aims at inviting constructors and participants of the BRI (Belt and Road Initiatives) as well as people of countries along the routes to create short videos with the theme “Share opportunities for a splendid future” in order to show new development opportunities brought to individuals and countries by international cooperation against the backdrop of the post-pandemic era and tell stories of people-to-people bonds and how countries pull together through adversity and jointly create a bright future through international cooperation.
It is obvious that the synergies under BRI between Africa and China have already changing daily life and gaining public acknowledge locally, including Lagos-Ibadan Railway, Mombasa–Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway, and national digital migration in Mozambique. As such, the organizers invite local media and folks to participate in the competition.
