China has established a news spokesman system in 11 CPC Central Committee departments and units, 31 provinces and half of district cities, the Central Foreign Propaganda Office announced today.

"The collective appearance of news spokesmen from central departments demonstrates an attitude of openness, enlightenment and confidence of the Communist Party of China," said Cai Xia, professoer of the Party School of the Central Committee.

The Central Committee of the Party has attached great importance in Party affairs publicity and information issue in recent years. The Fourth Plenary Sessions of the Sixteenth Central Committee proposed to "gradually advance Party affairs publicity and enhance the transparency of Party works."

The proposal to set up news spokesman system in Party committees was presented for the first time at the Fourth Plenary Sessions of the Seventeenth Central Committee, said Wang Chen, director of the International Communication Office of the CPC Central Committee.

He said the news spokesman system is an important measure to implement scientific development concepts that can strengthen and improve party building. It is also significant in further promoting publicity of Party affairs, intra-Party democracy, the Party's administrative ability and the construction of a favorable public opinion environment as well as a major act that leads to further press release system improvements.

Related departments of the CPC Central Committee have adopted various ways to introduce the Party's construction and relevant development information. For one thing, all departments actively attended the press conference organized by the Central Foreign Propaganda Office. Also, some departments released news by means of independent press conferences, special interviews and Internet publications.

"The promotion of Party affairs publicity and enhancement of the transparency of Party works are set targets that we must constantly push forward," said Guo Weimin, news spokesman of the International Communication Office of the CPC Central Committee.

It is reported that currently the Communist Party of China has carried out various forms of communication and cooperation with 160 countries and 570 political parties and political organizations.
