Beijing Pushes 92 Australian-Based Media Outlets to 'Tell China's Story Well'

Beijing has cultivated relationships with overseas Chinese-language media via major global conferences headlined by Communist Party leaders. Experts say it is part of CCP’s broader united front work. The revelations come after four Chinese nationals and journalists were denied re-entry into Australia following allegations they engaged in espionage or foreign interference. Since 2013, 92 Chinese-language media outlets from Australia have taken part in the Global Chinese Language Media Forum. The conference is backed by major Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organs, including the Information Office of the State Council, Beijing’s internet censorship arm; China News Service, the second-largest state-run media in the country; and the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office—which has been accused of influence activities.
