When they visited ITER early this week, Li Gui Hua, deputy director-general of the Executive Office at MOST (the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology) and Mingqin Ding, deputy director-general of the Chinese Domestic Agency ITER China followed this wise recommendation.

''Pursue toward a bright prosperous future'', say the large Chinese characters on the traditional painting that the delegation from MOST and ITER China offered to DG Motojima.
The delegation they headed included two journalists from China's Science and Technology Daily, and communication officers from ITER China. Before visiting the worksite and meeting the ITER senior management, the group met with the communication team at ITER and exchanged views on their respective practices. However different the context, "communicators" here and there pursue the same objective: explaining what is at stake with ITER and winning public support for the project.
