BEIJING, Oct. 25 (Xinhua) -- Xi Jinping, general secretary of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), told reporters worldwide on Wednesday that China welcomes objective reporting and constructive suggestions.
Xi made the remarks as he led other members of the Standing Committee of the 19th CPC Central Committee Political Bureau to meet the press at the Great Hall of the People.
"We do not need lavish praise from others, however, we do welcome objective reporting and constructive suggestions, for this is our motto: 'Not angling for compliments, I would be content that my integrity fills the universe,'" Xi said.
He encouraged members of the press to visit and see more of China, citing a Chinese saying that "it is better to see once that to hear a hundred times."
"We hope that after the Party Congress, you will continue to follow China's development and progress, and learn about and report on more dimensions of China," he said.
