In addition to the two-day acrobatics show, Experience China also includes a 10-day telecast on Congo's national channel of 12 carefully selected documentaries capturing the changes in China, publication of China-themed articles in local newspapers, and exchanges between journalists of both countries.

On March 30, Ngouabi University will launch a China Library. A collection of more than 10,000 books and videos, which Wang says will be regularly updated, is aimed at serving as a long-term platform "where the Republic of Congo will come to understand Chinese culture and China's development and changes".

Bienvenu Okiemy, Republic of Congo's minister of communication and the government spokesman, says they've been looking forward to the program and he believes it will give Congo nationals a chance "to see the real China".

"China has been an important partner of Republic of Congo with regard to energy and infrastructure construction. We believe the exchanges between the countries' top leaders will strengthen the connection between its people," he says.

Republic of Congo was one of the first African countries to recognize the People's Republic of China. Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of the countries' diplomatic relationship. Minister Okiemy says they've already started planning a series of events to commemorate the occasion.

"We've achieved a win-win situation in many aspects. Next year we have many important plans to realize. Republic of Congo will be more dedicated in spreading its history and culture on a global stage," he says.
