Brief introduction:Xinmin Po, which was first issued on September 9th, 1929, was the predecessor of Xinmin Evening News today. The newspaper was established by Chen Mingde, Wu Zhusi and Liu Zhenghua, with Chen Mingde as the president. After the September 18th Incident, the newspaper was actively engaged in promoting anti-Japanese campaign.

On July 1st, 1937, the press established Nanjing Xinmin News Press Co., Ltd to transform into a modern news enterprise, with Xiao Tongzi as chairman of the board and Chen Mingde as general manager.
