The Fifth Plenary Session of 18th CPC Central Committee has put forward new development concepts of innovation, integration, greenness, openness and sharing.

China adheres to innovation and development to" implement network power strategy" and " Internet + " plan of action, share economic development and put forward a national strategy of big data.

China is pushing the "Internet +" strategy and promoting technological innovations. The Light of Internet Expo mirrors China's innovation and development concept.

In the past 20 years, China's Internet has experienced rapid development starting from scratch.

There are now 4 million websites, nearly 700 million Internet users, 1.2 billion mobile phone users, 600 million WeChat and Weibo users producing 30 billion messages daily.

Chinese Internet companies also grew fast in the past decade, and the Internet has contributed to strong economic growth. In 2014, China's Internet economy reached 7% in GDP, more than in the US.

Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu and JingDong have four seats of the top 10 global Internet companies. China remains a veritable network nation, walking step by step.

Chinese Internet companies are tapping the overseas market. We are looking forward to China's strategy of "Internet +" to encourage the global economy, which is in recovery.
