“It (Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping’s speech on video to the Wuzhen in­ter­net con­fer­ence) is very in­struc­tive. It shows that Chi­nese lead­ers have all the prin­ci­ples in place, now they need to ex­e­cute. China has con­nected half of its pop­u­la­tion (to the in­ter­net). How it will con­nect the other half— that’s the main chal­lenge.” Raj Reddy, pro­fes­sor of com­puter Carnegie Mel­lon Univer­sity, Pitts­burgh, US

“It’s a very good speech and his as­pi­ra­tion is also our as­pi­ra­tion.”

James Saaka, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Na­tional In­for­ma­tion Uganda

“It is a speech full of vi­sion and it de­liv­ers a per­spec­tive that the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity should fol­low for the well­be­ing of the en­tire hu­man­ity. But we need to im­prove in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion to reach the goals men­tioned in the speech.” Gio­vanni Pitruzzella, chair­man Au­thor­ity

“It is a speech with a con­sis­tent mes­sage. His idea that the in­ter­net should be gov­erned by all coun­tries is cor­rect.” John L Thorn­ton, co-chair­man at the Brook in gs In­sti­tu­tion, Wash­ing­ton, and pro­fes­sor and di­rec­tor of global lead­er­ship

“It is a very log­i­cal speech and the four prin­ci­ples Pres­i­dent Xi pre­sented make sense. I be­lieve the in­ter­net should have rules and from the speech I know Xi is try­ing to achieve a bal­ance be­tween gov­ern­ment sur­veil­lance and cy­ber­se­cu­rity is­sues.” Greg Slater, vice-pres­i­dent and as­so­ciate gen­eral coun­sel for In­tel Cor­po­ra­tion

“I agree with Pres­i­dent Xi that there should be rules for the in­ter­net, or some stan­dard that the world should abide by, for bet­ter co­op­er­a­tion and trade. The in­ter­net is not a law­less zone. Ev­ery other sub­ject like fi­nance, mil­i­tary, and medicine... has its own rules. The in­ter­net should be no dif­fer­ent.” Del Chris­tensen, chief of global busi­ness de­vel­op­ment, Bay Area Coun­cil

“Dream, lead­er­ship and in­no­va­tion are the three key words in Pres­i­dent Xi’s speech. The con­fer­ence should pro­mote the de­vel­op­ment of concrete ideas for ac­tual in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion in cy­berspace.” Luigi Gam­bardella, pres­i­dent as­so­ci­a­tion based in Brus­sels
