New Delhi, Dec.21 (ANI): The Chinese Government will provide comprehensive service to the foreign media next year with timely dissemination of more authoritative information, Minister of the State Council Information Office Cai Wu has pledged.
Wu noted the improved service provided to foreign journalists during the 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in October was much appreciated.
“They (the foreign media) welcomed the unprecedented openness of the congress and the service provided during the period,” Cai told the China Daily.
“This is a good sign, and we will continue to be more open in the coming year, and provide satisfactory service for all media.”
Next year will see an array of important events, including the Beijing Olympic Games and the 30th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up.
An estimated 30,000 foreign journalists are expected next summer in Beijing to cover the Games.
Cai promised that China would “comprehensively” implement the State Council order granting foreign journalists more freedom to report in China in the run-up to, and during, the Games. Over the past year, the office held more than 70 press conferences and issued several white papers on food and product quality as well as the country’s political system.(ANI)
