I am a reading teacher in Haysville, Kansas. My students will be doing a research project beginning in August. For their project they will need a variety of information about your country. Could you send me a packet of information? Items that would be of interest would be information about the history, government, tourism and economics in your country. Any other information you might have would be appreciated also. Thank you for your prompt reply.
Much information on our website (china.org.cn) -- those in the news columns and also the online features -- might be helpful for your students' research project.
First you could go over the features of "China -- Quick Facts" and "China in Brief" to gain a general impression of the various aspects of China's past and present.
For knowledge on China's history, you could have a look at the features of "Creativity and Ancient China," "Archaeological Discoveries," "Historical Wonders of Sanxingdui," "Photos: 1900 Invasion of China," and "Commemorating Korean War", which skim over the 5000-year-old Chinese civilization as well as some major events in China's modern times. The sub-column "A Treasured Past" to the column of Culture provides latest archaeological discoveries.
The Chinese government has a strong voice on this website. The column of Government, together with the features of "China's Political System," "China's Judicial System," "Party Congress 2002," "NPC & CPPCC 2002," and "60 Bills & Motions," releases thorough and authorized government-related information.
If you are interested in having a tour of China, the rich information and beautiful pictures in the column of Travel and the three features of "Cultural Heritage Sites," "China Through a Lens" and "Travel in Beijing" could be of some help.
We offer timely and reliable business information in the column of Business. The features of "China: Facts & Figures 2001," "Ninth Five Year Plan in Retrospect," "The 10th Five-Year Plan" and "WTO China Updates" should also help you deepen your understanding of China's rapidly changing economy.
Your may also use our search engine to find out what you need from not only our websites but also other Chinese media websites in English.
