At the annual national two sessions (the first session of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC), and the first session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) that opened on March 5 and March 3 respectively), media reporters from countries such as Algeria, Egypt, Gabon, Germany, Italy, Japan, Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar, Rwanda, Senegal, Somalia and Tunisia said that Wuhan is a beautiful city, and they are fascinated by it. They hope to have a greater experience at the 7th CISM World Games.

Through interviews and reporting on the games, it is an opportunity to present Wuhan to the readers and spectators of their countries. 


Elin, German

Elin, a Beijing correspondent of Germany's Die Welt, is an old friend of Wuhan. He hopes to be in Wuhan on the opening day to report news about the Military World Games to the Germans.

He knew that Wuhan would host the games long ago. On November 29, 2018, a China-Europe (Wuhan) freight train, carrying 10 containers with the 2019 Military World Games' mascot (Bingbing) painted on them, set out from Wuhan and headed for Hamburg, Germany. In each container there was an English letter of invitation inviting cargo owners to come and watch the games in Wuhan.

Since 1998, Elin has been a reporter in Beijing for Die Welt and Austria's Der Standard, and has participated in the national two sessions over 10 times. He was dispatched by his government to work in Wuhan for a period of time. There he lived in Jianghan University and visited Yellow Crane Tower and East Lake. 


Pagliara Claudio, Italy

Pagliara Claudio, the chief journalist of Radiotelevi-sione Italiana in China and East Asia, visited Wuhan three years ago. "Wuhan is very big and beautiful!" He told the reporter on March 6. Rome was the host city of the first Military World Games, an event that Claudio is familiar with. "The Military World Games will be held in Wuhan in October this year. I really hope that I could have an opportunity to go to Wuhan again and report about this event."


Tuoda, Myanmar

Tuoda, a reporter from Myanmar International Radio, paid close attention to the cooperation between China and Myanmar and how China and Myanmar would cooperate in the future. In her opinion, Wuhan is a very beautiful city with a vibrant economy. She wishes the games a complete success and hopes that the games will help serve as a bridge for international exchanges.
