BEIJING, November 7 (Itar-Tass) —— The Chinese news agency Xinhua will mark its 80th anniversary on Monday. Chinese leaders, journalist veterans and numerous foreign guests attended a festive meeting at the House of National Assemblies on the Tiananmen Square on the occasion.
The Chinese Communist Party created the news agency of Red China in the regions the party controlled in 1931 and it was given the current name in 1937. Since then Xinhua turned in one of the largest news agencies in the world. The news agency has more than 160 offices abroad and transmits the news reports on eight languages - Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Arab and Japanese.
In 2009 Xinhua held the first World Media Summit, which showed a growing authority and the role of the Chinese news agency. A next World Media Summit will be held in Moscow in 2012.
