[photopress:Liu_Yunshan.jpg,full,alignright]Liu Yunshan, the head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, wants China’s media organizations and government departments to improve the way they release information via the Internet.
Liu referred to the Internet as an ‘important window through which the outside world can learn about China’.
He said that all the major news websites and government websites should introduce Chinese issues to international society from different angles and update information in a timely manner. In fairness, any unbiased observer would say that in this area China has been doing an excellent job, especially when compared to other Asian countries. Perhaps the upcoming Olympic Games has more closely focussed attention.
Liu Yunshan said that in the run-up to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, an increasing number of art performances, exhibitions and cultural expos would be held for an overseas audience to learn about Chinese culture. The Internet should be used to publicise them.
