BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- President of Xinhua News Agency Fu Hua met with Head of Reuters News Agency Sue Brooks in Beijing on Thursday, calling on enhanced exchanges and mutual learning between the two sides.
Fu welcomed Brooks to attend the Fifth World Media Summit in China, saying that Reuters was the first major western news agency to establish a partnership with Xinhua.
Since the signing of the news cooperation agreement in 1957, the two sides have achieved fruitful cooperation on news exchange and photo agency, Fu said.
Noting that the two organizations are both initiators of the World Media Summit and members of the summit's presidium, Fu said the two sides should strengthen exchanges and mutual learning and make joint efforts to enhance the communication, guidance, influence and credibility of news reports in the era of mobile Internet.
Brooks said Reuters values friendly relations with Xinhua and is willing to deepen exchanges with Xinhua in areas such as media application of new technologies and strengthen cooperation under the framework of the World Media Summit.
