On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between #China and #Belgium, China Media Group (CMG) has joined forces with URTI (International Radio and Television Union) to co-produce a mini-documentary series titled “In Their Eyes 50 years China-Belgium.” The series follows the lives of six people — three Belgians in China and three Chinese in Belgium, whose stories exemplify how relations between the countries have deepened over time. #Politics

CMG President Shen Haixiong said, “Belgium hosts the headquarters of the European Union and plays an important role in China-Europe relations. Over the past half a century, the friendly exchanges between the Chinese and Belgian peoples have flourished, as many wonderful and moving stories unfolded. This time, ‘In Their Eyes 50 years China-Belgium’ has selected young and middle-aged people living in each other’s countries to show their recognition and acceptance of each other’s cultures in a vivid narration. This is a poem composed with video that proves ‘a bosom friend afar brings a distant land near.'”

In the first episode, Gianni Girolami from Belgium, shares his experience living in China in the past six years. He is now married to Hong Yan, a Chinese world champion wrestler. Together, they’ve settled down with their child in China’s southern boomtown of Shenzhen, where he helps a startup intelligent storage company sell products to Europe. He said he aspires to act as a small link between his home country and China.
