Major Internet conference set for this month
China will host an Internet conference this month, bringing together more than 1,000 representatives from tech firms and regulators.
The Nov 19-21 conference will cover global Internet governance, mobile Internet, cross-border e-commerce, cyber security and terrorism. It will be held in Wuzhen, a historic water town in Zhejiang province.
Lu Wei, China’s top Internet regulator, said the event came about after experts suggested that China should take responsibility for Internet governance and development. “China now has 630 million Internet users and four of the top 10 Internet companies,” said Lu.
Attendees at the conference will include Alibaba Chairman Jack Ma and Tencent founder and Chairman Pony Ma.
