China's Ministry of Information and Information Technology (MIIT), will continue its cooperation with Advanced Micro Devices.

Earlier this week, officials from both sides met to discuss technological transformation, energy saving strategies and pollution reduction.

The meeting was intended to promote China's IT industry and the cultivation of local IT talent.

The two parties demonstrated their intent to deepen long-term collaboration on rural IT facility construction, integrated circuit (IC) design training, CPU test technology and industry policies and standards.

AMD will build rural area comprehensive information service training centers in over 40 areas nationwide within three years.

"China is an important and strategic market for AMD. Our success here has been based on our strong partnership with key organizations like MIIT," said Bruce Claflin, AMD Chairman of the Board.

"AMD believes that a greater portion of China's population will have the opportunity to benefit from accessible technology as a result of future cooperation with MIIT," he added.

The October 12 meeting was attended by Claflin, MIIT Vice-Minister Yang Xueshan and Karen Guo, AMD Senior Vice-President and President of AMD Greater China.

AMD, or Advanced Micro Devices, is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California. According to a statement on its website, the firm is dedicated to igniting the next generation of computing and graphics solutions at work, home and play.

Recent partnerships

AMD has worked with the MIIT since early 2009 to establish rural China comprehensive information service training centers. To date, 13 centers have been built, with another eight to be completed by year's end.

Since 2007, AMD has worked with the MIIT on the CSIP-AMD IC Design training program. More than 1,000 students have graduated from the program. It will continue for another three years in major cities across the nation.

In May 2008, AMD joined the China Electronics Standardization Institute to open the MIIT-AMD IC & CPU Test and Evaluation Technologies Research Center.
