"Data Diplomacy" made the world closer
The Review of Home and Abroad News Press 14-years "Data Diplomacy"


   On March 9th 2001, Home and Abroad News Press was established on in Hong Kong. In the past 14 years, we have witnessed China's strong growth and the world's changes. In the past 14 years, we took our media social responsibility in the international community. In the 14 years, we hold "China Dream" at the frontier of the world media. "News Diplomacy" provided us unlimited positive energy, and "Data Diplomacy" made us closer to the world.
   On the international stage, Home and Abroad News Press made its great impressions in many major events. June 23rd 2006, Home and Abroad News Press has been designated as the mainstream media by the North-North Network associated with the United Nations, the Steering Committee of the UN-HABITAT and the UN International Eco-safety Cooperative Organization. The media received the honor of the "Royal Medal" from the King of Cambodia in November 4th 2007. It also received the honor of "Presidential Award" at the 17th International Media Expo in November 1st 2010. In September 23rd 2012, the President of Home and Abroad News Press Mrs. Wei Yan was honored as the "American Honorary Citizen". Home and Abroad News Press always takes the social responsibilities of being a mainstream media in the international community with the pursuit of global vision, international standards, forward-thinking strategies and operational excellence. The Home and Abroad News Press magazine is also recognized as one of the major media channels by the Chinese government. Currently, the media has 49 regional and local branches and information centers around the world, such as the United States, Canada, Finland, France, United Kingdom, Singapore, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Australia and other countries and regions.
   In our exclusive interviews, most of the world leaders are smart, well-educated, agile, quick responsive and have extensive interests and hobbies. Because many of them are very busy for the daily agendas, colorful lifestyle will not help them to maintain their physical and mental health, but also help them to govern the countries in a better way. Therefore, when we had exclusive interviews with them, we always paid special attentions to a series of "important data" which is connected to their work or life so that we can build the rapport with them at the first meet. For example, when we had interview with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Estonia Andrus Ansip, we know that he is a very close friend of Finland Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen. We can correctly tell him that when, where and how they met each other and what projects the two countries are currently cooperating. This impressive response made Prime Minister Ansip instantly connected with us and became our good friend at the first meet.
   Our "data" diplomatic strategy also works very well in some challenging situations. Home and Abroad News Press received the "Presidential Award" in the 17th International Media Expo in Iran. After Mrs. Wei Yan, the President of Home and Abroad News Press, received the trophy and the certificate, many journalists from Iran, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Greece, Bahrain, Pakistan, Palestine, Albania, Syria and Iraq came to interview her immediately. They asked her: "Congratulations to your "Presidential Award"! You are from China, how do you see the relationship between China and Iran?" Mrs. Wei answered: "In my opinion, the bilateral relationship between China and Iran is very good. Both countries attached great importance on continuously developing partnerships in political, economic, cultural, technology, education and tourism fields. The people in the two countries are also very friendly to each other." The journalist then asked another question: "If you said the relationship between China and Iran is very good, why China joint the group action against Iran on the nuclear issues in the UN meetings?" Mrs. Wei seemed very calm and answered: "on June 9th, the UN Security Council passed the Resolution #1929 with 12 votes to agree, 2 votes to against and 1 abstention. 109 days after this resolution, Chinese Politburo Standing Committee Chairman Mr. Li Changchun led a delegation visit Iran and met with Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He passed the warm greetings from President Xi Jinping to President Ahmadinejad and Iran people. Both sides signed many cooperation agreements in various sectors. Next year, we will be celebrating for the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Iran. In the next 5 years, the bilateral trading between the two countries will reach $100 billion USD level. Many major projects will possibly increase that figure to $200 billion USD level. Many people and countries believe that China and Iran’s friendship is profound, solid and everlasting. This partnership will pass all kinds of challenges and trials." The journalist was shocked and answered that: "You just listed many data and numbers to answer my question, like Resolution #1929, 109 days, $100 billion and $200 billion and so on; we can see why you can remember all figures so clearly, it is because you highly value the friendship with Iran. Also, you didn’t mention anything about the "conflict" between China and Iran, which really shows your professionalism as an excellent journalist. As one of the top media around the world, we feel that you are deserved to receive this "Presidential Award". Congratulations again and wish you a very pleasant journey back home tomorrow!"
