BEIJING, Jan. 18 (Xinhuanet) --Xinhuanet.com, the online service of Xinhua News Agency, launched a new English version Monday as part of its effort to follow the latest trend of Internet development and help domestic and overseas netizens learn more about China.

China has been playing an increasingly significant role in the global arena, and overseas netizens have been paying an increasingly closer attention to the country's economic and social development. The Chinese culture and history, livelihood of the Chinese people, have become a focus of global media coverage.

By launching the new version, Xinhuanet intends to present China to the world in a more comprehensive, prompt and objective way, while providing more international news items with an open vision.

In an effort to release news stories by various means with different perspectives, and impress the readers with a fresh visual experience, the new version has substantially increased its video and photo coverage. It has also drawn upon the web design styles and concepts of internationally-known English news websites.

Xinhuanet has always been dedicated to providing the public with ample and valuable information and data services. Its new version has been making greater efforts in this regard as well. Except for general-purpose services such as weather forecasts and travel information, the new version has included services with special characteristics, such as information related to job seeking, immigration, adoption, marriages, etc.. The information will make it easier for foreigners to live and work in China.

The new version is available at english.news.cn, and is also accessible via the former domain name chinaview.cn.
