Three principles have been made clear in a state plan on developing a “digital China” over the next decade during President Xi’s speech on cybersecurity developments.
1) China’s cyberspace development should adhere to the people-centered development philosophy. Xi has said that Internet-based services should be expanded to reach more people, costs be lowered, and the majority of people benefit.
2) Xi said big data was the next stage of information development. He has ordered China to study big data development and its implications for society. He said China should examine its gains and shortfalls in this particular area and push for a national big data strategy.
3) Building a “community with a shared future in cyberspace.” Xi has called for global efforts to make the Internet a more beautiful, cleaner and safer place.
