Xi calls for shared fu­ture in cy­berspace

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

An anal­y­sis of Xi’s re­marks at the con­fer­ence in­di­cates that his vi­sion for the In­ter­net has been con­sis­tent since he took of­fice in 2013.

For ex­am­ple, in an ad­dress to the Brazil­ian congress in July last year, he said no dou­ble stan­dards should be al­lowed in up­hold­ing cybersecurity, and no party should seek so-called ab­so­lute se­cu­rity for it­self at the ex­pense of the se­cu­rity of oth­ers.

Last week, Lu Wei, chief of the Cy­berspace Ad­min­is­tra­tion of China, said, “In­ter­net en­ter­prises are wel­come in China as long as they do not hurt our na­tional and con­sumer in­ter­ests.”

Kamel Mel­lahi, a pro­fes­sor of strate­gic man­age­ment at War­wick Busi­ness School in the United King­dom, said, “Pres­i­dent Xi’s key­note speech to­day un­der­scores the im­por­tant role the In­ter­net is go­ing to play in the fu­ture Chi­nese econ­omy, and gives hints on how China is plan­ning to un­leash the po­ten­tial of the In­ter­net.”

The three-day an­nual In­ter­net con­fer­ence is sched­uled to end on Fri­day.
