Hu Jia, director of the IRI overseas business department, shared examples and detailed methods of successful publicity. She encourages Chinese SOEs to deeply understand and follow local laws, regulations, industrial and international standards and inform locals about their overseas corporate social responsibility programs. Chinese SOEs also need to collect local residents'advice and learn about their expectations when launching a new project abroad, she added.

Hu said it is also essential for enterprises to cooperate with think tanks, non-governmental organizations and the United Nations if they want to make their publicity more targeted and effective.

Over 50 representatives from China's major central SOEs, SASAC, IRI and mainstream media attended the salon.
