China Radio International launched several new programs in London on Monday, the same day when Chinese Premier Li Keqiang kicked off a visit to Britain.
The programs were launched as a result of a trilateral agreement between China Radio International (CRI) and British-based Propeller TV and Spectrum Radio.
According to the deal, CRI will be involved in 12 hours of English programs, which are expected to be locally produced and aired by a digital radio station in London. CRI's English programs will also be broadcast via AM558 in London for 10 hours every day.
The agreement will also enable the partners to consolidate cooperation concerning radio, TV, Internet, printing media, movie production, personnel exchange and resource sharing.
On the sidelines of the signing ceremony in London, CRI also launched an English portal website, english.china.com, and a bilingual magazine, Opportunities China, which is aimed at strengthening Sino-European business and trade relations.
