德國是世界工業先進國、歐盟最大經濟體,其產品以製作嚴謹、設計創新、質量保證著稱,「德國製造」已成為優質品牌產品的標誌。現時「中國製造」與「德國製造」仍有一段距離,虛心向對方學習與合作,將有助中國的工業發展。

中國國務院總理李克強日前前往德國訪問,與德國總理默克爾共同主持《第三輪中德政府磋商》、共同出席在柏林舉行的《第七屆中德經濟技術合作論壇》,他並出席了在漢堡舉行的《中歐論壇漢堡峰會第六屆會議》。. ......>Read more

Message from Mr. Joachim Gauck, President of the Federal Republic of Germany
德意志聯邦共和國總統獻辭


When we celebrate our National Day this year, a quarter of a century after the peaceful revolutions in Central and Eastern Europe and the fall of the Berlin Wall, we recall that German unity was not simply a stroke of luck. It was the yearning for freedom of the oppressed that led to the overthrow of the oppressors in the communist dictatorships. It was the courage of many people in Gdansk, Prague, Budapest and Leipzig that made the miracle of German and European unity possible. ......>Read more





Message from Mr. Frank Waltern Steinmeier, Foreign Minister of the Federal Republic of Germany
德意志聯邦共和國外交部長獻辭


In 2014, we look back on milestones that shaped the course of both German and world history. Two of these dates cast especially long shadows: one hundred years ago, two gunshots fired in Sarajevo cast Europe into the abyss that was the First World War. Seventy five years ago, our country unleashed the Second World War with the invasion of Poland – culminating in unprecedented crimes against humanity. ......>Read more

大韓民國駐廣州總領事楊昌洙在慶祝國慶招待會 致辭

We Korean people are commemorating this day for the foundation of our nation 4,347 years ago. Into the 20th century, Korea has ever suffered the ordeals of the loss of national sovereignty, its division into South and North, and the occurrence of the Korean War. Now Korea has become a country which has enjoyed peace and prosperity in the world through its hard work and in cooperation with the international society.

Now Korea has become one of few countries among the newly-founded nations after World War II, which has attained industrialization and democratization all together. From one of the poorest countries in the world, she has become a member of OECD as a club of developed countries. She has also made herself into a donor country from a recipient country. The Republic of Korea has contracted FTAs with major economies such as ASEAN, India, EU, USA and the like, which has made Korea one of the countries with its economic range of activity broadest in the world......>Read more

August 2014


印度尼西亞是世界第四人口大國,全國人口達二億四千八百萬人,亦是全球最大的穆斯林人口國。該國近年經濟發展迅速,二零一三年的國民生產總值達八千六百七十五億美元,人均生產約三千五百美元,目前是東盟的最大經濟體、世界第十六大經濟體。因此,印尼在地區事務上的影響力不容小覷。
今年是印尼總統大選年,由於現任總統尤多約諾已連任兩屆,按照印尼憲法不能再參選。因此,印尼鬥爭民主黨的佐科‧維多多與大印尼運動黨的普拉博沃‧蘇比安托便成為兩大熱門競爭對手,經過激烈的競選活動和選民在七月九日踴躍的投票後,維多多獲百分之五十三點一五選票,而普拉博沃獲百分之四十六點八五選票,維多多在總統大選勝出後將於二零一四年十月二十日宣誓就任印尼第七任總統。......>Read more

慶祝朝鮮民主主義人民共和國成立六十六周年
Celebration of the 66th Founding Anniversary of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

A Country of Strong Independence
強大的獨立國家
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is known worldwide as a country of strong independence as it always maintains the principle of independent politics, self-supporting economy and self-reliant national defence.
The DPRK has demonstrated its dignity by dint of independent politics.
When he started revolutionary struggle to liberate his country from the Japanese military occupation (1905- 1945), President KIM IL SUNG, founding father of socialist Korea, put forward the unique line of anti-imperialist, anti-feudal democratic revolution suitable to the specific conditions of Korea. ......>Read more

On the Strength of Songun
先軍的力量
August 25 is not an ordinary day for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
On the day in 1960, General KIM JONG IL, eternal Chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, started the Songun-based leadership by inspecting the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the Korean People's Army.
For over half a century since then under his Songun-based leadership, the DPRK has always safeguarded its sovereignty and dignity with honour in the ceaseless confrontation with the United States which claims to be a "superpower." ......>Read more

Supreme Leader KIM JONG UN of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is winning great affection and respect from his people, the intensity of which is drawing the admiration of the international community.
The world wonders how the Korean leader, though it was not long since he took official posts, is so loved by his people.
The answer to this must be found in his politics of affection for the people.
Leader KIM JONG UN bestows his warm love on the people.
Whenever he meets soldiers and people, he embraces them tenderly, gives them a clap, walks holding their hands in his and whispers in their ears.
When he is among the children, he pats on their cheeks and unreservedly accepts their requests.
He poses for photos with ordinary soldiers and people, arm in arm.
While visiting the army units he stands with every one of the soldiers, numbering dozens, who are unwilling to part from him, to pose for a camera for a long time.

July 2014
草根總理

眾所周知,雖然印度自譽為全球最民主的國家之一,但種性歧視至今仍存在。月前印度的國會大選,由國大黨的胡爾‧甘地與印度人民黨的莫迪對決,大選結果令西方諸國「大跌眼鏡」,出生於低階種性家庭的莫迪勝出,終結國大黨十年來的統治。莫迪在勝選後發表演說,聲言希望在十年內,將二十一世紀變成「印度的世紀!」。
莫迪做事的作風以務實著稱,在當上古吉拉特(Gujarat)邦省長時,創下「莫迪奇蹟」,令該邦經濟騰飛,普受當地人民歡迎。但在多年前因曾鎮壓當地的穆斯林,被美國視為不受歡迎的人物,並從二零零五年開始拒發訪美簽證。所謂「三十年河東,三十年河西」,當莫迪當選總理後,美國總統奧巴馬隨即致電莫迪,表示願邀請莫迪訪問華盛頓。美國白宮還發佈聲明表示:「我們期盼與新政府密切合作,未來繼續加強、拓展美印戰略夥伴關係。」 ......>Read more

He shed light on the way ahead for mankind by authoring the great Juche idea. ......>Read more

Brilliant Songun Commander and Socialist Korea
卓越的先軍指揮官和社會主義朝鮮

 Today the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a powerful, independent country even the United States, which poses as “the only superpower,” dares not attack, and a strong fortress for defending peace in Northeast Asia and the rest of the world.

This surprising reality is unthinkable apart from the wise guidance of Kim Jong Un.

Last year the situation in Korea was very serious. In the beginning of the year the US resorted to the schemes aimed at stifling the DPRK, labelling the latter’s launching of a peaceful satellite as the “launching of a long-range missile.”   ......>Read more
