Xinhua has expanded its operations and includes 24 hour television news. The quality and range of publications, radio and television channels and online information has developed rapidly in several languages. Chinese media are supplying facilities and training to the media of many other countries, even as they also soak up the experience and knowledge of the most advanced media industries. Not only national media but provincial media are entering the world’s markets.
