ATHENS, June 17 (Xinhua) -- Greece's national broadcaster ERT and the Chinese Guangxi Television Station unveiled a cooperation project on Thursday evening to air a series of documentaries on Guangxi, an autonomous region in southwest China.
Starting from June 20, ERT will broadcast on a daily basis a total of seven documentaries, produced by Guangxi Television and featuring the breath-taking landscape of the region, its people and rich cultural heritage.
During a ceremony in Athens on Thursday evening, senior officials from both sides announced the cooperation project.
"We hope this will be the first step in productive cooperation with Chinese television stations," said Panagiotis Tsolias, director of corporate communication at ERT.
"We believe that Guangxi can have a pioneering role in China-Greece friendly exchanges and that it can become an important bridge and can play an active role in the Belt and Road Initiative," said Zou Xiaoli, Chinese Ambassador to Greece.
The Belt and Road Initiative, proposed by Chinese leaders, refers to the Silk Road Economic Belt that links China with Europe through central and western Asia by inland routes, and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road connecting China with southeast Asia, Africa and Europe by sea routes.
