IBM to train 40,000 Chinese

The IT company has signed the agreement with China Electronic Information Application Centre, the training arm of China’s ministry of information industry.

Economic growth and China’s entry into the World Trade Organisation have generated an enormous demand for more skilled workers in virtually every vocation and profession, IBM said.

The training would target university and college students as well as graduates in the job market and cover professional training, basic programming in Chinese, OO/Java, Linux and e-business, the company said.
