BEIJING， Dec. 2 (Xinhuanet) -- The multi-language version (Spanish， French， German and Russian) of Xinhua Xuanwen app， a major mobile news app of Xinhuanet， was officially launched Friday.
The move aims to help Xinhuanet enter the mobile news app market of the western countries and beef up its communication capability.
Upholding the principle to "Publicize China to the World" and making full use of Xinhuanet's quality multi-language versions， Xinhua Xuanwen app will release China’s political， economic and cultural news to the western users in the multi-media format.
Meanwhile， Xinhua Xuanwen app will cover major international news events in Europe and the United States from China’s perspective.
It is the first time that Xinhuanet launches such large-scale multi-language version mobile news app since its English version， China Watch， was launched in December 2014.
Next， Xinhuanet plans to expand its cooperation with the main-stream media organizations， mobile communication operators and new Internet media of the western countries， and further explore their mobile news app market.
HANOI， Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam needs approximately 1 million information technology (IT) workers by 2020， according to the national workforce master plan on Tuesday.
The country is facing a serious shortage of high-quality IT workers， which poses challenges to the country as digitalization， the fourth scientific revolution， is taking place worldwide.
According to a popular local recruitment website Vietnamworks， the demand for IT workers increases 47 percent annually but Vietnam meets only eight percent of demand.
Nguyen Thanh Tuyen， Deputy Director of the Ministry of Information and Communications' Information Technology Department， said Vietnamese students can quickly grasp IT but lack soft skills and teamwork ability.
Most software companies are small and medium sized without professional marketing staff so products are often distributed via foreign partners， Tuyen said.
A survey of more than 50 IT firms carried out by the Hanoi University of Science and Technology's Faculty of IT showed that some 70 percent of IT graduates had good grades. However， in reality， the IT workforce is weak in English proficiency， self-study and negotiation skills.
Those who are fully equipped with the above skills tend to work for foreign enterprises， leading to the manpower scarcity for domestic firms， Vietnam's state-run news agency VNA quoted the survey as saying.
To improve the IT workforce， Vietnamese Minister of Education and Training Phung Xuan Nha suggested rallying public involvement in IT and English training.
Meanwhile， vice president of the Vietnam Software and IT Services Association Mai Duy Quang proposed connecting IT firms with educational establishments， holding more conferences and seminars to aid students.
In 2014， Vietnam's Ministry of Information and Communications issued a circular on standardizing IT education， with an aim to train generations of quality IT staff.
BEIJING， Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- Microsoft founder Bill Gates on Tuesday officially opened his WeChat public account by sharing a Chinese translation of the 2017 Annual Letter， written by himself and Melinda Gates.
Starting in 2009， Bill Gates has released the letter at the beginning of each year. This year， the letter highlighted progress in global health and development during the past 25 years.
This post had clocked up more than 30，000 reads and received over 1，700 likes within two hours of its release Tuesday evening.
In a 30-second video shared earlier on the account， followers of the official account were greeted by Gates in Chinese.
"Hello， welcome to my new WeChat public account，" he said.
"This is my personal blog， where I will talk bout the people I meet， the books I am reading， and what I am learning，" he continued in English.
"I hope you will join the conversation，" he added.
As China takes an increasing leadership role in health， development and global affairs， according to a media statement released by the account Tuesday， Gates will use the WeChat public account to discuss positive examples of international collaboration in areas of health， energy and philanthropy.
The public account will accept questions from Chinese about the Annual Letter and the new account by the end of February. Gates will select two to three to answer in later posts.
In 1975， Gates and Paul Allen co-founded Microsoft， which became the world's largest PC software company. Over the years， successful stories of entrepreneurship have gained him popularity in China.
Gates opened a Weibo account six years ago.
Some influential international figures， such as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi， former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd， Apple CEO Tim Cook and International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde， have accounts on China's microblog Sina Weibo. They regularly post updates on their work and lives， and extend seasonal greetings to Chinese netizens.
