BEIJING, March 21 (Xinhua) -- A senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official Thursday called for efforts to build a batch of high-level think tanks that meet the requirements for the new era.

Huang Kunming, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks at a meeting of national high-level think tanks.

Huang said high-level think tanks should focus on the central work and major needs of the Party and the state, and strengthen strategic forward-looking research, so as to better support economic and social development.

The think tanks were ordered to broaden their international horizons, deepen research on international issues, increase exchanges and cooperation with other countries and better spread Chinese views around the world.
