Interfax-China Information Agency, which is part of Interfax Information Services Group, would like to announce that it has launched a new English-language news web-portal, www.interfax.cn, intended for a broad international business readership.

The new web-resource gives visitors access to all of Interfax-China‘s English-language information products, providing detailed coverage of the situation in the oil, gas and mining industries, in information technologies and in other core sectors of the Chinese economy.
"The world business community‘s interest in China has been growing and the number of national and foreign media highlighting economic developments in China has been increasing," Chairman of the Board and CEO of Interfax Group Mikhail Komissar said. "Through www.interfax.cn, we offer international readers world-level products in a convenient and easy form, which, I am sure, will quickly win popularity to this resource," Komissar said.
"We will not stop at what has been achieved and will actively widen the spectrum of services provided by www.interfax.cn," said Interfax-China project managing director Michal Broniatowski. "We currently offer our visitors a sizeable amount of information for free and hope our readership will increase quickly," Broniatowski said.
The web-portal‘s free section provides key stories from the Interfax-China newswire. The website also gives the visitor free access to daily morning and evening reviews of the Chinese press provided by our editors.
You can apply for trial free access to the "closed" part of the news portal by contacting one of Interfax-China‘s offices in Shanghai, Beijing or Hong Kong.
