The first "China Documentary Festival" global exhibition, jointly organized by China Media Group and China's Ministry of Culture and Tourism, kicked off on June 21 with a launch ceremony in Beijing. At the ceremony, 100 guests from more than 60 countries and regions, including Germany, France, Russia, Spain, Belgium, the United Arab Emirates, Israel, New Zealand, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Thailand, Laos, Mongolia, Nigeria and Tanzania, wished the exhibition success in 18 languages. 

Tony Browne, New Zealand's ambassador to China from 2004 to 2009, said one of the most important aspects of building cultural exchanges is language.

"We have a range of interests in China that really cover the full range of what you would expect in two countries that have got a great deal in common," he said.
