Chinese and foreign journalists came together on Thursday night at a Mid-Autumn Festival reception held in Beijing Baoguo Temple, one of the city's historical sites once known for its antique market, dating back to Liao Dynasty (907-1125).

Dozens of journalists based in Beijing, embassy press officials, and representatives from Chinese media outlets gathered at the temple, exchanging ideas, listening to traditional Chinese music, and savoring moon cakes ahead of the festival.

They immersed themselves in China's rich traditional culture by participating in interactive activities like painting "Tu'er Ye" (the Rabbit God) and decorating Peking Opera facial masks.

China's Mid-Autumn Festival embodies the Chinese people's hopes for family reunions and global harmony. These sentiments resonate with people worldwide, said Liu Siyang, vice chairman of the All-China Journalists Association.

Liu called on journalists from home and abroad to enhance communication, deepen mutual learning, and contribute to the blending of world cultures in order to strengthen international friendships.

Promoting the city's splendid culture, Xu Hejian, deputy director of the Publicity Department of Beijing, said the city has been dedicated to help journalists with their reports in the capital. So far, publications such as newsletters and media manuals have been distributed to help journalists with their work.

The event was organized by the All-China Journalists Association and the Information Office of Beijing Municipality.
