TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — As a Trump ban on transactions by WeChat is set to take effect on Sept. 15, a photo has surfaced showing top executives posing with party members and a communist flag inside the headquarters of its parent company Tencent in Beijing — making the close ties between the corporation and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) abundantly clear.

On Aug. 8, human rights activist Jennifer Zeng posted on Twitter a photo of a CCP event held inside the corporate headquarters of Tencent in Beijing's Haidian District, showing employees and CCP members holding a communist banner. The photo originates from a report on a CCP event held at the headquarters in 2016.

The event was organized by a branch of the CCP of Beijing Normal University's School of Journalism and Communications and held inside Tencent's corporate headquarters in the Zhongguancun technology hub in Haidian in late December of that year.

Titled "Entering Tencent to Acquire Wisdom of Party Building," the event was attended by 50 students, academics, and members of the CCP. Without mentioning their name, the article states that the CCP member in charge of party affairs for Tencent's Beijing office explained the party's operations inside the tech giant to the guests.    [FULL  STORY]
