The service employs a mix of Kenyan, African and other international journalists and produces Africa's-based programming. There are about 100 employees at CCTV Africa most of them Kenyans.
With CCTV Africa the intention is to promote a better understanding of Africa in China as well as to promote a cultural connection between the people of both places. The idea is that African news is better depicted from an African perspective. CCTV focusses on politics, economy, trade and culture.
China Global Television Network, or CGTN, is China’s new international media organization. It was launched by the national broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) on December 31, 2016.
