China Central Television has opened its African head office in the Kenyan capital Nairobi.

The office, which will function as a regional broadcast center, aims to provide African viewers with their own window to Asia and improve CCTV's coverage of African affairs. It will also promote cross-cultural understanding between African and Chinese people, while playing an important role in political, economic and cultural exchanges between both sides.

CCTV News Programming Director Zhuang Dianjun said, "CCTV's African bureau marks another step in strengthening diplomatic relations between China and African countries. I am convinced that CCTV's increased coverage of Africa will provide Chinese viewers with a chance to better understand Africa."

Bitange Ndemo, permanent Secretary of Kenyan Information & Comm. Ministry, said, "China has become a very strong partner in Kenya, any of the flyovers you are seeing in Nairobi Chinese are building, any of the laying of fiber that is being done, Chinese are doing it, together with Kenyans we need to continue with these partnerships."
