She pointed out that China is a great country with a long history that has organized many
segments of society and life in a unique way, which is why it should come as no surprise that
China's media system is different in many ways, but also included in modern media organization and work.
She also explained that China has adјusted the number of media and the system of functioning of the media to Chinese people and Chinese culture, emphasizing that the media system of this country is large and developed with thorough regulation applied by five major regulatory bodies and that its laws protect the domestic production, that it seriously filters the contents and develops training programmes for journalists. In other words, China is investing a lot in technological development, but also in overseeing that development, with the intention of protecting the Chinese culture.
