11-01-2012 21:40 BJT

The press center for the 18th Party Congress has come into use. The center says with the world casting its eyes on China’s leadership transition, it’s now getting ready for an unprecendented influx of correspondents from around the world.

Opening the doors to the world. The press center has officially come in use for reporters from across the globe. With China’s leadership transition due to happen in just a few days time, this place will be center of news and information of what’s happening by minute.

Senior political reporter Wang Mingyi has come all the way from Taiwai. For the past twenty years, he’s been covering four Party Congresses in a row. But he tells me this time it’s different.

Wang Mingyi, senior journalist of China Times Group, Taiwan, said, “The world is eyeing closely on the leadership transition, because any change in China’s politics will hugely impact the world, pariticarly in such times of global economic recession. That’s why media around the world are all trying to get first hand information in the very first moment."

For that, the press center pledges transparency and timeliness.

Zhai Huisheng, director of Press Center for 18th National Congress of CPC, said, "What reporters are seeking for is nothing but information and interviews. So we’ll do all we can to help broaden their choices during the Congress. We are arranging press conferences, exclusive interviews, internet interviews, as well as field reports outside the press center."

So far, most of the preparation work of this press center has finished. Here in this news office, it may still look quite empty at the moment, but within a few days, it will be crowded with correspondents from across the world. The press center just told me that with the world casting its eyes firmly on this Congress, it’s likely to be the most publicized around the world.
