（中外新闻社 中外新闻网 记者北京报道）疫情冲击下的世界正在发生着深刻变化。2011年至今为止，已有108个国家驻华大使成为“《中外新闻》时代新闻人物”，2020年9月5日，在这个喜庆的日子，中外新闻社大使俱乐部应运而生，8国驻华大使在北京红石艺术馆为中外新闻社大使俱乐部成立剪彩。它将成为加强各国之间的相互信任与睦邻友好，是一个开放、多元、健康的汇聚平台。
The world under the impact of the pandemic is undergoing profound changes. Since 2011, 108 foreign ambassadors to China have become "Home and Abroad News Press --- the News Person of the Year". On September 5th, 2020, Home and Abroad News Press “Ambassador’s Club” was founded in Beijing. The eight ambassadors to China cut the ribbon for the “Ambassador’s Club” in the Redstone Art Museum. It will become an open, diverse and positive platform to strengthen mutual trust and good-neighborly friendship between countries.
The sudden attack of the pandemic hit many people in many ways. There was no hustle and no fun during the Chinese New Year, and the roads were completely empty. It seems that the whole world had stopped, and all the big cities have become separated land overnight. Many ambassadors and diplomats working or living in Beijing all felt the same. There are many things to say and many emotions to express from their hearts.
Home and Abroad News Press believes that it is an urgent need to establish the “Ambassador’s Club” during this global pandemic. President Wei Yan had previously communicated with ambassadors from many countries to reach a consensus. This club is a harmonious and beautiful home for the world's big family with Eastern and Western cultural integration. On the same day, Mrs. Wei Yan, the President of Home and Abroad News Press and Mr. Shen Feng, the Honorary President of Home and Abroad News Press, presented the "VIP Card of Ambassador’s Club" to the ambassadors who attended the founding ceremony. The ambassadors can use this VIP card to dine, tea and coffee breaks, business gathering as well as appreciation of Chinese paintings and calligraphy, strange stones, sculptures, jewelries, arts and crafts, jades, bronzes, precious hardwood furniture, pottery and other artworks at Redstone Art Museum.
The VIP guests for the Ambassador Dinner included Mr. Li Beihai, the Former Vice Minister of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee; Mr. Jiang Weiqing, Director of the United Nations International Collaboration and Coordination Agency; Mrs. Wei Yan, Deputy Director of the United Nations International Collaboration and Coordination Agency and President of Home and Abroad News Press; Mr. Shen Feng, Director of the European Branch of the United Nations International Collaboration and Coordination Agency and the Honor President of Home and Abroad News Press; H.E. Mr. Jose Augusto Duarte, Ambassador of the Portuguese Republic to China; H.E. Mr. Sergey Manasarian, Ambassador of the Republic of Armenia to China; H.E. Mr. Simon Adovelande, Ambassador of the Republic of Benin to China; H.E. Mr. K. K. Yoganaadan, Acting Ambassador of Sri Lanka to China; H.E. Mr. Egamzod Muhammad, Acting Ambassador of Tajikistan to China; H.E. Mrs. Lisbet Quesada, Deputy Head of Mission of the Cuban Embassy in China; H.E. Mr. Bah Thierno Maadjou, Acting Ambassador of the Republic of Guinea in China; Mr. Cai Xi, the Former Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia and other officials.
Over the past 20 years, Home and Abroad News Press has been at the forefront of the world media with the "China Dream". We created positive energy through our "news diplomacy" strategies. As an international mainstream media, we have cooperated with government agencies and news agencies in 89 countries around the world with extensive exchanges and cooperation to promote a real China to the world; as a return, we won the respect and attention of all countries. It is believed that the founding of the Ambassador’s Club will surely contribute more "Chinese wisdom" to the promotion of building a community with a shared future for mankind.
