INTERNATIONAL DATA GROUP LAUNCHES 'NETWORK WORLD' IN CHINA; PUBLICATION TARGETS CHINESE TECHNOLOGY MARKET THAT GREW 40 PERCENT IN 1992

 BOSTON, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Patrick J. McGovern, chairman and CEO of International Data Group (IDG), the world's largest supplier of information on information technology, today announced the launch of China Network World, a weekly newspaper that meets the needs of China's rapidly growing technology market.
 Published in Beijing, China Network World serves the growing Chinese computer networking and telecommunications industries by providing timely, critical information on emerging trends and news both in China and abroad.
 "China's technology-related industries are rapidly growing, with the computer networking field growing at 40 percent last year," said McGovern. "Network World will provide this burgeoning market with the information they need to make critical decisions both now and in decades to come."
 China Network World is the result of a joint venture between IDG and the Technical Information Research Center, a division of China's Ministry of Machinery and Electronics Industry. IDG and the Ministry have held a partnership for more than 12 years, beginning with the establishment of China Computerworld in 1980, through which McGovern became the first American to form a joint venture with China.
 "Network World comes to China during a time when the Chinese government is making a heavy investment in its electronics and communications industries as part of its effort to strengthen the economy," said Hugo X. Hsiung, director of Asia Business Development for IDG. "One of the key areas to be developed is computer networking and communications, and Network World will provide the industry with the information it needs to grow."
 According to Hsiung, the Chinese government is investing close to $123 billion this year in fixed assets as part of its five year plan for high tech industrial development and growth.
 China Network World's publisher, Song Xian, reports that the initial issues of the newsweekly will average 32 pages, with pages divided almost equally between editorial and advertisements, and with a circulation of 50,000 copies.
 Headquartered in Boston, International Data Group has annual revenues of more than $800 million and 5,000 employees. Its publishing subsidiary, IDG Communications publishes more than 190 newspapers and magazines in 60 countries. IDG's trade book division, IDG Books Worldwide, is the fastest growing computer book publisher with over 40 titles in print and foreign translations in over 17 languages. IDG's research subsidiary, International Data Corporation (IDC), is the leading market research and analysis firm covering the computer field. Its exposition management subsidiary, World Expo Corporation, runs 65 computer-related exhibitions and conferences in 21 countries.
