A senior Chinese official has called on the country's broadcasters to boost promotion of China's adherence to peaceful development and advocacy of a harmonious world.
Li Changchun, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), made the remarks in a letter to congratulate China Radio International (CRI) on its 65th anniversary, which was on Sunday.
Liu Yunshan, head of the Publicity Department of CPC Central Committee, urged CRI to develop new media forms and become a multi-media outlet with radio and online broadcasting.
CRI, founded in 1941, is China's only overseas radio broadcaster. It broadcasts 1,100 hours of programs a day in 38 foreign languages, mandarin Chinese and four Chinese dialects.
