On 7 January, the signing ceremony for an agreement on co-publishing the Esperanto edition of The UNESCO Courier was held in the China International Publishing Group (CIPG).
Organized by the China Report Press and China Esperanto Association, the ceremony marks the partnership between UNESCO and China Report Press under CIPG to translate and publish the Esperanto version of The UNESCO Courier, a flagship magazine of UNESCO.
"The publication of the Esperanto version of The UNESCO Courier Complies with UNESCO's mission to promote cultural diversity and the use of Esperanto," says Ian Denison, chief of UNESCO Publishing and Branding.
The UNESCO Courier, a flagship magazine of UNESCO, is published as a platform of communication between different civilizations. It resumed publication in 2017 with support from Chinese government and now it is published in 11 languages.

Zamenhof was the creator of Esperanto, an international language of communication between peoples. His work led to the publication in 1887 of a textbook on the « Lingvo Internacia » — the international language — for which he used the pen-name, Doktoro Esperanto. In the following years, other textbooks were published as well as a dictionary and translations into Esperanto.
« Esperanto, » Zamenhof once said, « know neither weak nor strong nations, privileged nor inferior peoples... All of us equal on neutral ground, should consider ourselves members of the same human family. —— "Zamenhof, father of Esperanto“ via Lilliput, Paris on a world tour (Dec, 1959)
