Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said on Wednesday the government will consider applications of foreign media to post resident correspondents in more Chinese cities.

Liu said the government had received applications from foreign news organizations for resident branches or journalists in cities other than the five currently allowed.

China will be more open to foreign media and welcomes more foreign journalists to China, Liu told a forum on media cooperation among the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), plus Japan, the Republic of Korean and China.

"We will study the applications in a comprehensive and a positive way," said Liu at the forum in Tianjin.

Liu, who is also director-general of the ministry''s Information Department, said, "The conditions for foreign journalists to gather news inside China have been improving, especially since the start of the year."
