China Daily on Sunday announced the establishment of "The Edgar Snow Newsroom" in an effort to give full play to the role of its senior foreign experts and international friends, Zhou Shuchun, publisher and editor-in-chief of the newspaper, announced at the Vision China event in Jiaxing, East China's Zhejiang province.

The newsroom aims to present a true, multi-dimensional and panoramic view of China by better telling the story of the country and the Communist Party of China to the world, Zhou said.

Edgar Snow was an American journalist who first made the CPC known to the world through his books and articles on the Party and the Chinese Communist revolution in the 1930s.

His book, Red Star over China, became an instant hit in London, with more than 100,000 copies sold in just a few weeks and is still much sought after following three additional printings.

In March this year, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China hopes to see and welcome more Edgar Snows of the new era.
