Addressing the launch ceremony, Xiong Xuanguo, Vice Minister of Justice, said that the restructured Ministry of Justice is assigned important duties in processes including legislation, law enforcement, administration of justice and legal publicity to encourage obedience to the law. It plays a critical role in promoting law-based governance and building the rule of law in China.

He said that the publicity campaign is a crucial step in telling good stories about the rule of law and disseminating its voice. He urged all provincial-level judicial administrative authorities to attach great importance to the campaign, and to bring forward the role models with vivid and touching stories.
Lv Yansong, Deputy Editor in Chief of People's Daily, said in his address that People's Daily has always highly regarded the publicity of rule of law and gained positive social effect in its effort to publicize the progress China has made in promoting overall law-based governance.

Yuan Zhengming, Vice President of China Media Group, vowed in his speech to turn the campaign into a flagship movement for judicial publicity by making it more vivid, stereoscopic, down-to-earth and ceremonial, with the role models hopefully becoming household names.
