Lou Qinjian, secretary of the CPC Jiangsu Provincial Committee, went on an inspection tour Tuesday to the branch offices of some state media outlets, Xinhua Newspaper and Media Group and Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation.
Lou expressed his gratitude to the state news outlets for their efforts to publicize Jiangsu over the past years by promoting role models and positivity for high quality development.
He expected that the news outlets will carry forward the spirits of the 19th CPC National Congress and the important speeches made by General Secretary Xi Jinping during his inspection tour to Jiangsu early December.
During his visit to Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation, the CPC Provincial chief was briefed on the TV and radio operator’s study and implementation of the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress.
He reiterated the significance of adhering to the Xi Jinping Thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era, demanding that news outlets should enhance their political stance to make better publicity of the province’s efforts for economic development and social undertakings.
When visiting Xinhua Newspaper and Media Group, Lou spoke highly of the glorious history of Xinhua Daily which was launched by China’s late premier Zhou Enlai and other senior leaders in the late 1930s.
He hoped that Xinhua Daily will remember where it got started so that its mission can be accomplished by enhancing its political stance and making better publicity of the party’s work to resolutely uphold the authority and leadership of the CPC central committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core.
