Senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official Liu Yunshan Friday met with Patrick McGovern, founder and chairman of International Data Group (IDG), a U.S.-based multinational company.

Liu, head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, spoke highly of the fruitful efforts the IDG has done to promote media exchanges and cooperation between the two nations.

Liu, also a member of the Political Bureau, said China's cultural industry had bright prospects for development, and Chinese and foreign media should increase cooperation.

Liu also extended thanks for McGovern's assistance to China's earthquake relief work.

McGovern expressed appreciation for the Chinese government's leadership in the quake relief efforts.

He said his company would increase investment in China and contribute more to the U.S.-China media cooperation and cultural exchanges.

IDG, founded in 1964, is the world's leading technology media, research, and events management company, according to its website. IDG was the first American IT service company to enter the Chinese market.
