Integrating production and education, and paying attention to the development of vocational education in China

During the process of vocational education, emphasis is put on practical operations, to improve students’ practical skills and practical working abilities. With the increasing popularity of the Internet and computers, China is marching rapidly to become a great power in Internet.
