In­ter­net Dreams of Chi­nese and Amer­i­can Col­lege Stu­dents

Last De­cem­ber, when Lu Wei, di­rec­tor of the Cy­berspace Ad­min­is­tra­tion of China, at­tended the 7th

US-China In­ter­net In­dus­try Fo­rum in Wash­ing­ton, he ex­tended an in­vi­ta­tion to col­lege stu­dents in the US to come to China.

They ac­cepted, and on Wed­nes­day, about400­col­lege stu­dents from the US and China Fo­rum on In­ter­net Com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

The or­ga­niz­ers, in­clud­ing the Cy­berspace Ad­min­is­tra­tion of China and the All-China Youth Fed­er­a­tion, hope that col­lege stu­dents from both coun­tries make a joint at­tended Cul­ture the and con­tri­bu­tion to In­ter­net co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries.

RenXian­liang, deputy min­is­ter of the Cy­berspace Ad­min­is­tra­tion of China, said he hoped that stu­dents post and spread pos­i­tive mes­sages, ratherthanbein­volved in ver­bal violence or hacker at­tacks.

I be­lieve the dig­i­tal silk road is the road of the fu­ture. China and the EU should co­op­er­ate in In­ter­net fo­cus­ing on spe­cial­iza­tion. China is the largest and the fastest-grow­ing mar­ket in the world, and the EU has a mar­ket of 500 mil­lion peo­ple. Of course, there should be con­crete ideas to im­ple­ment the plans. I think a cy­ber silk road treaty should be in place. We should an­a­lyze each other’s reg­u­la­tions to dis­cuss fu­ture pol­icy.

There are chal­lenges in build­ing a dig­i­tal silk road. Peo­ple are in­creas­ingly us­ing the In­ter­net and the trend brings new chal­lenges in sovereignty, se­cu­rity and de­vel­op­ment in­ter­ests. Build­ing a dig­i­tal silk road for win-win co­op­er­a­tion is not the re­spon­si­bil­ity of one sin­gle coun­try. It is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of ev­ery per­son that uses cy­berspace.
