A delegation of foreign media professionals is embarking on a tour of Fujian Province in east China, conducting an in-depth exploration of the historical and cultural heritage and witnessing its captivating development stories firsthand.

The "China Up Close" tour started on Sunday and will last about one week, bringing together 21 journalists and other media professionals from 18 countries across the Asia Pacific region.

The tour aims to help broaden understanding of China within the global media industry, letting reporters observe its development and engage in extensive exchanges.

Their first stop was Fuzhou, the provincial capital of Fujian and an important port city.

On Monday morning, the foreign media professionals arrived at the Kuliang Resort in eastern Fuzhou, where they had the opportunity to appreciate the cultural and scenic beauty of the site and visit historical buildings.

Kuliang, or Guling in Mandarin, is a pleasant summer resort with green mountains, lush vegetation, and fresh air. It became a haven where both locals and foreigners congregated during the warmer months. The resort has seen generations of people strive to promote friendly exchanges and carry on international relations through the years.

"I think it is really interesting to see how much inter-cultural history is here in Kuliang. Especially for me as an American, to know what a long history that there is between China and U.S. friendship here, and to see more of the long history. It's just really exciting," said Rachel Weiss, a CGTN reporter.

On Monday afternoon, the delegation arrived in Ningde City, and visited a local innovative new energy technology company. They gained in-depth insights into the company's development history, core products, research capabilities, technological innovations and others.

"This is my first time in Fujian and my first time in China overall. In China, I'm really excited to see a lot more of the progression of renewable energy and green energy and how this can benefit," said Mareva Cameron, a reporter for Cook Islands Television.
