Services for journalists

The European Union and its institutions strive to work together with the media and provide them with as much information as possible. The Delegation in Beijing keeps in close contact with the Chinese media and international media based in China through a regularly updated database of contacts. Please also see the press materials on this website for recent press releases, speeches and photos.

The Delegation receives a number of high-level visits from Brussels and holds regular press conferences throughout the year. Other activities include an annual media visit to Brussels whereby selected Chinese journalists working on EU and international topics can become more intimately acquainted with the workings and organisation of the EU institutions. A Journalists' Christmas Party is organized annually to which all journalists interested in EU affairs are invited and where they can make valuable contacts with EU officials from various sectors in a relaxed atmosphere.

The EU Ambassador to China and selected other officials in the Beijing Delegation are happy to accept interviews on EU-China relations and specific topics. Please contact the Press Officers of the Delegation if you are interested in an interview:
