The Seventh China-Africa Youth Festival kicked off on April 18 with representatives from 48 African countries attending. The attendees can choose to participate in workshops on traditional Chinese crafts and arts such as playing the guqin (a stringed instrument), learning Peking Opera or creating ceramic decorations.

The one-week event, jointly hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, China Soong Ching Ling Foundation, and the Shandong government, took the African youth representatives to tourism destinations, rural-vitalization projects and high-tech enterprises in Beijing and Shandong province. Since 2018, the China-Africa Youth Festival has hosted over 300 young people from Africa, becoming an important event for cooperation between Chinese and African youth.
