People's Daily, the Communist Party of China's (CPC) flagship newspaper, announced on Sunday that it is providing its own English language news app, a key step in integrating the traditional media and new media and to better "connect China with the world."

The launch comes just ahead of the 19th CPC National Congress in Beijing this week.

"This is a timely opportunity for our English language app. The 19th CPC National Congress will open in Beijing three days from now to worldwide attention and this app has bright prospects. We can use this opportunity to provide timely coverage on the Congress and the latest insights of the CPC to the world and the new blueprint of China's development," said People's Daily President Yang Zhenwu.

"China has never been so close to the center of the world stage … The changing world is eager to know more about China. The international community expects China to share its experiences, expound on its propositions, propose solutions, and contribute its wisdom," Yang added.
