“This is just the beginning" of Polish Radio’s collaboration with SRT, the owner of the Chinese radio station, Barbara Stanisławczyk, the head of Polish Radio, said on Tuesday.
Stanisławczyk added that Radio FM 95.5 is “one of the leading stations, if not the leading station... in Sichuan province, which focuses on current trends, including in music. That is why this collaboration is so important.”
The deputy head of Polish Radio, Jerzy Kłosiński, said that the team-up with SRT will provide an opportunity for Poles and Chinese to get to know each other better.
“Sichuan province has a population of 80 million people and Polish-Chinese relations with this province are strong,” Kłosiński said, adding: “And it is common knowledge that relations are best strengthened by culture.”
Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Jan Dziedziczak said: “The presence of Polish Radio in China means that millions of listeners are getting to know Polish culture.”
He added: “This is a great opportunity for Polish Radio to develop, but it is also a great tool to promote Poland.”
Polish music can be heard on Radio FM 95.5 throughout January, every day at 2:15pm and 7:30pm.
In July, Polish Radio will send a team to the Sichuan international music festival and further collaboration is planned.
