As China is playing more and more important role in international affairs, the world is eager to know more about China. During Liu Xiaoming’s 11-years-tour of Chinese Ambassador to the UK, he reached out enthusiastically to a broad spectrum of audience to present China story via mass media and multimedia communications. He faced up to challenges and never shied away from difficult and complex issues in order to make China’s voice heard, understood, recognized and believed. Liu Xiaoming made unremitting efforts to mitigate the “understanding deficit” between China and the West.
This book includes 32 interviews he gave to major TV and radio networks including BBC, Sky News, ITV and Channel 4. Many of them are live interviews with Britain’s best known TV presenters and interviewers.This book covers a very range of subjects from President Xi Jinping’s state visit to the UK, China-UK relations, understanding China, Hong Kong, Covid-19, to China-Japan relations. Every subject has background information and every interview has the author's notes telling the story behind the interview.
In the book, Liu Xiaoming also shares his experience in dealing with western media, especially his 'magic tool' and 'secrets' to success. As an 'ice-breaker' in the era of communication, Liu Xiaoming is constantly striving to present a credible, admirable and respectable China.
