The World Internet Conference (WIC) in Wuzhen, China, World Climate Conference (WCC) in Paris and the prime ministers’ meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) have demonstrated China's rise to greater prominence. Beijing is building a consensus to lead the future for the benefit of humanity.

 

As Chinese President Xi Jinping remarked in WCC in Paris, Beijing seeks to join hands with each country and create a beautiful future for society, i.e. the future of working according to each other's abilities and winning together, the future of legal governance, fairness and justice, along with tolerance, mutual reference and development.

China intends to act as an active pioneer, powerful constructer and sincere promoter of the future. The growth of Internet technology is unexpected. Due to the popularity of mobile Internet and smart terminals, people from all walks of life are entering a new Internet society with unpredictable speed.

Every cyber citizen can build a local area network (LAN) with the Internet of Things (Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent (Wechat) ) and WIFI technologies, and realize a seamless connection with the Internet. Network socialization and living networking have become a fact of life.

In the future, we would enter into the ear of a customization economy and autonomously shape our own lives with Internet plus technologies.

The U.S. has remained the leader of the world in the past 20-years of Internet development. The conference is a match between Beijing and Washington, as well as an opportunity for China. Historically, China had missed out on the first Industrial Revolution, chasing after the second Industrial Revolution, and transforming into a leader in the third Industrial Revolution.

China is capable of mastering the Internet, which stands as a significant opportunity for the nation. Beijing has convened the WIC last year and set Wuzhen as the permanent site for the annual conference.

The Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China had stressed an Internet plus action plan and big data strategy to support all kinds of innovations. It is China’s national policy to boost the Internet.

It is believed that the WIC could establish an international platform of mutual connections between China and the world, as well as a Chinese platform of sharing and mutual governance to help each country reach a consensus over disputes and realize win-win cooperation.

China has set up an Internet communication platform, as an idea of China's practice of global governance.

The Internet is no longer a visual tool, but the expression of a comprehensive national power, merging with politics, economy, military and foreign affairs. Beijing is not late to Internet development and is already endowed with technologies and power.

The conference would strengthen China's dominance over regulating cyber rules, make use of the Chinese language, narrate Chinese stories, spread Chinese spirit and forge a discourse belonging to itself and accepted by the world.

A larger consensus power was reached on the platform dominated by China. Beijing could enjoy more leadership in the future. Let's give  thumbs up for Xi, Chinese Premier LiKeqiang for their high vision, great talents and ambitions. The China Dream could be realized.
