Xinhua, 10 December 2001

CHENGDU, December 10 (Xinhua) -- A state-level software industry base went into operation recently in this capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, indicating that 10 state software industry bases have taken shape in China.

Last June, the government decided to set up 10 bases on the basis of previous software parks in the cities of Chengdu, Beijing, Shanghai, Dalian, Xi'an, Jinan, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Changsha and Nanjing.

The decision was aimed at providing a better environment for the software industry and boosting its development.

The bases are expected to develop overseas markets, expand international cooperation in the field and sharpen China's international competitive edge in software industry, sources said.
