China and the Development Gateway Launch Partnership -
On September 14, the Government of China and the Development Gateway Foundation formally launched a partnership to use information and communication technologies (ICT) to improve people's lives in China and other countries. China is a founding member of the Development Gateway and its partnership now includes the China Country Gateway, a research center in Shanghai, a training center in Gansu, and an Asian ICT conference. As a country that is evolving from a recipient of international aid to a contributor, China is eager to support peaceful development worldwide and to share its own development experience with the rest of the world, said Zou Jia Yi, Director General of China's Ministry of Finance. At the same time, for a country that is still addressing its own development challenges, "ICT is an important means to reduce poverty in China," she said. Some partnership work has already begun: The China Country Gateway already has some 50,000 visitors each month to the bilingual site and has translated dgMarket services into Chinese on the Development Gateway's global web portal.
