This live-televised and live-webcast interpreted conference offers a channel for the highest-level political leader to meet the international journalists face-to-face and is one of the most prominent forms of interpreting in China.The guest speaker will provide a unique insight into how the Chinese official voice is co-constructed by intervention of the (official) interpreter.
