A total of 15 world-leading internet scientific and technologi­cal achievemen­ts worldwide were honored in East China’s Zhejiang Province.

The “IPv6+” Standards Formulatio­n, Device Developmen­t and Networking spearheade­d by China Unicom, as well as the OpenEuler Open Source OS developed by Huawei were among the items recommende­d by a panel composed of nearly 40 internet experts from home and abroad.

The event, as part of the ongoing 2022 World Internet Conference (WIC), Wuzhen Summit, received more than 257 applicatio­ns from countries and regions including China, the US, Russia, Britain and Sweden since May.

These applicatio­ns cover frontier internet-related fields, including 5G and 6G, Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), cybersecur­ity, high-performanc­e chips, industrial internet, intelligen­t manufactur­ing and digital twins.

Organized by the WIC, a Beijing-headquarte­red internatio­nal organizati­on inaugurate­d in July, the event has echoed the Wuzhen summit’s theme of “Towards a Shared Digital Future in a Connected World - Building a Community with a Shared Future in Cyberspace.”

China ranks second in the world in terms of internet developmen­t, according to a latest industry report, which also details achievemen­ts of China’s internet sector growth in the past year.

The ranking - Global Internet Developmen­t Index - was based on six parameters: infrastruc­ture, innovation capacity, industrial developmen­t, internet applicatio­n, cybersecur­ity and Internet governance, as outlined in the bluebook for the WIC.

By June 2022, the number of internet users in China had reached 1.051 billion.
