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.
