Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday told foreign journalists to roam the country and report more, even as five global news organizations found themselves without invitations to cover his speech.

The BBC, The Economist, The Financial Times, The Guardian and The New York Times were not invited to the event where Xi introduced his new leadership line-up following a once-in-five-years Communist Party Congress, the Foreign Correspondents Club of China (FCCC) said.

Two Reuters journalists were invited.
