On 21 October, representatives of African youth attending the 6th China-Africa Youth Festival visited Yanqing District, Beijing, to learn about the development progress of local villages and visit the venues of the 2022 Winter Olympic Games.

At Lipao Village, the delegate learned about the history of the village from pictures and actual exhibits and were impressed by its transition from a poor, remote village to a modern village with beautiful natural environment and economic prosperity.

 

In the afternoon, the delegate visited the venues of the 2022 Winter Olympic Games and experienced skating. After that, the delegate experienced Chinese calligraphy with the company of 15 student representatives from Yanqing. Representatives of African youth said that they were impressed by the first-class venues and services and believe that the upcoming 2022 Winter Olympic Games would be a huge success.

After the visit, representatives of African youth shared their feelings and expressed the appreciation for having the ooportunity to learn about China's rural revitalization strategy at first hand.

 

Representatives of African youth from different countries pointed out that the experience was very inspiring. According to them, China attaches equal importance to urbanization and rural revitalization. With the application of modern agricultural technologies and the development of industrial chains, rural areas are able to improve productivity and find new growth pathways. At the same time, China also integrates green development concepts into rural revitalization to ensure the harmonious coexistence of human and nature. This fully shows that the Communist Party of China is a party that puts the people first. Some African representatives also expressed the wish of learning from China and promoting the experience of China in their own countries.
