The 2016 Annual Conference of the Boao Forum for Asia, or the BFA, will be held in Boao in south China’s Hainan province from March 22 to 25.
The forum has become a high-end platform for dialogues among government leaders, industrial and business elites from Asia and beyond. In the context of fundamental changes in the world economy, this year’s forum is aimed at promoting discussion on how Asian economies will steer economic restructuring, and how else to develop new sources of growth for the world economy. Premier Li Keqiang is scheduled to attend the opening ceremony.
Now, two days ahead of the forum, the media center is already up and running, and preparation work is entering its final stages to welcome journalists from around the globe.
“We have over 180 signal transmission stations, so that the press can take in the live video, audio feeds and transmit them through our Internet, and use the feed for their coverage. This will guarantee their timely reporting,” said Qin Xiaopeng, Boao Forum for Media Center.
