China stays open-minded in coping with new media: senior CPC official


08:57, May 10, 2012

BEIJING, May 9 (Xinhua) -- A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) said here Wednesday that the CPC and Chinese government insist on an open-minded and inclusive attitude in coping with new media.

Li Yuanchao, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and head of the Organizational Department of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks when addressing the third China-Singapore Forum on Leadership.

Li said the rapid growth of new media is an important part of the current information society, and has brought both opportunities and challenges for ruling parties and governments around the world.

Efforts have been made by the CPC and Chinese government to guide officials to treat new media in a scientific and correct way, help them better harness new media and strengthen guidance of public opinion in the network, Li said.

He also said China continued to take a positive approach in its handling of new media.

Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, who led a Singaporean delegation to attend the forum, said new media is a double-edged sword for society.

Teo Chee Hean said people should avoid arbitrary and malicious use of new media, so as not to hurt harmony of the community and social order.

He said governments must maintain its presence in new media.

The forum, centered on the leadership development in the age of new media, attracted over 100 representatives and scholars from the two countries.
