The media center for China’s Xiongan New Area was officially inaugurated on Jan. 16.

Wang Dongfeng, secretary of the Hebei Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China, and Yang Zhenwu, president of People’s Daily, attended the inauguration ceremony.

The media center, which is jointly operated by People’s Daily and the administrative committee of Xiongan New Area, started a pilot run last September. Through innovative mechanisms, the center has provided tremendous support for the construction of Xiongan New Area with a variety of news report and authoritative policy interpretations, Yang noted in his speech.

Yang Zhenwu addresses the ceremony.

Yang introduced that People’s Daily and Hebei Province share a close bond with each other, since the initial publication of the newspaper was made in Heibei’s Pingshan County 70 years ago.

Yang said that while standing on a new position of history and facing a new historical mission, People’s Daily will stay true to itself, and spare no effort to help create a better future for Xiongan New Area.

Wang Dongfeng addresses the ceremony.

Wang Dongfeng noted that the establishment of the media center is conducive to spreading Xiongan’s voice to the world and creating a sound public opinion environment for the Xiongan New Area. Hebei is dedicated to building the media center into a first-class media platform with international reputation and influence. The provincial party committee and government will give full-fledge support to the center.

A news website and a mobile news app tailored for the Xiongan New Area were also launched at the inauguration ceremony.
