New TV show aims to unite Shang­hai’s ‘new so­cial class’

Global Times US Edition - - CHINA -

A talk show will show­case Shang­hai’s emerg­ing “new so­cial class” and their take on so­cial is­sues.

“Shang­hai New Force,” which will be aired on Ori­en­tal Fi­nan­cial Pudong Channel on Satur­days at 9 pm, is a talk show for­mat pro­gram fea­tur­ing ex­perts from the tech, me­dia and other in­dus­tries, as well as in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies.

The pro­gram seeks to “unite” and “build co­he­sion” among the 3.65 mil­lion peo­ple from Shang­hai’s emerg­ing pro­fes­sional class, the show’s pro­duc­ers said at a press con­fer­ence at the Shang­hai Tower on Tues­day.

Of­fi­cials from the United Front Work Depart­ment of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) Cen­tral Com­mit­tee (UFWD) and the CPC Shang­hai Mu­nic­i­pal Com­mit­tee also at­tended to pro­mote the pro­gram.

The UFWD de­fines “new so­cial class” as pro­fes­sion­als who work in tech­nol­ogy, so­cial or­ga­ni­za­tions, new me­dia and other emerg­ing in­dus­tries.

The pro­gram’s round­table for­mat will see guests tack­ling so­cial is­sues and ana- lyz­ing hot top­ics, as well as fu­ture de­vel­op­ments from their emerg­ing so­cial class, the pro­duc­ers said.

The pro­gram will help unite Shang­hai’s new so­cial net­work and will set a good ex­am­ple for other cities in the united front work. The new so­cial net­work was formed last year through the estab­lish­ment of so­cial so­ci­eties, in­clud­ing “train­ing class for on­line celebri­ties,” “the Shang­hai new me­dia al­liance,” and “new al­liance of lawyer.”
