The upcoming 2nd World Internet Conference (WIC), also known as the Wuzhen Summit, will be held in Wuzhen town, east China's Zhejiang Province on Dec.16-18. Chinese President Xi Jinping will deliver a keynote address at the opening ceremony. On Dec. 9, the State Council Information Office held a press conference.


More than 2,000 attendees from over 120 countries and regions are expected to participate, with foreign guests accounting for roughly half. Participants will include high-ranking government officials and representatives of international organizations, Internet companies, academics, experts, think tanks and college students.

At the 1st WIC in 2014, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said the internet is a new tool for pioneering work and innovations. Beijing has promoted the "Internet Plus" strategy. The internet was lifted from being a tool to a strategy-maker, playing a pivotal role in China's development, transformation and upgrading of its economy.

China's attention to the "Internet Plus" strategy can be observed from major decisions and arrangements by the Central Committee of Chinese Communist Party and the central government. During the  annual sessions of NPC (China's top legislature)and CPPCC (China's top advisory body) last March, Premier Li put forward an "internet" action plan for the first time in his government work report. The "Internet Plus" was listed in China's 13th FiveYear Plan (2016-2020) to promote integrative development.

It's the best carrier to achieve a transformation of the economy. Innovation ranks first place among growth concepts including innovation, coordinated and green development, opening up and inclusiveness in the 13th FiveYear Plan. Since implementation of the "Internet Plus" action plan, many new technologies, commercial activities and development dividends have been generated.

As the second largest economy in the world, Beijing can boost comprehensive national strength and international competitiveness through the internet.

The internet is also an incubator to launch innovations for emerging industries. Beijing should push deep reforms of industry ecology. Internet featuring innovation, sharing and integration will become a "new disposition" during the 13th FiveYear Plan.
