Hu calls for responsible media

PRESIDENT Hu Jintao said yesterday that China would continue to make government matters public and enhance information distribution.

At the same time he called on news media groups and individuals to uphold social responsibilities.

Media organizations should promote the "true, correct, comprehensive and objective communication of information," Hu said in a keynote speech at the World Media Summit at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

With growing influence, "it is more important than ever before that the media should establish and uphold social responsibilities," he said.

Hu pledged the Chinese government would safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of foreign news media and continue to facilitate foreign media coverage of China in accordance with the law.

He called on the global media to promote world peace and development, and to contribute to building a harmonious planet.

Foreign media coverage of China grows in terms of its scale and range, which has played an important role in helping people around the world understand the development in China, he said.

"We sincerely hope that media organizations from around the world can make new contributions to deepening the world's understanding of China, and help consolidate and develop friendship between the Chinese people and those in the rest of the world," Hu said.

The government supported the Chinese media in enhancing exchanges and cooperation with foreign counterparts in news communication, human resources, information technologies and business development, he said.
