China Daily: China eyes 6G as next tech frontierChina Daily shares some of China's strategic plans in informatization for the next five years. The media cites the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25) which sets 6G technologies as a top priority for the country. It will serve as "a new economic driver."

"China will accelerate the research and development of 6G technologies, the construction of the large-scale 5G network, as well as the large-scale application of Internet Protocol version 6-the latest worldwide modality aimed at making the internet bigger, faster and more secure," Yang Xiaowei, deputy head of the Cyberspace Administration of China, said. "More efforts will also be made to fully release the vitality of data through speeding up the building of systems and standards to accommodate data flow, cross-border data transmission and data security protection. The digital economy can truly play its critical role nationwide," Yang said.

This strategy will be further discussed at the 4th Digital China Summit, which will run from April 25-26 in Fuzhou, Fujian province, under the theme of "New Potential for Data and New Journey of Digital China" and will be held both online and offline. In addition to existing high-end products in the field of 5G UHD video and holographic projection, this forum will be the arena to announce informatization development policies, showcase the latest achievements and share the experiences and practices of new digital China construction.

For the past 5 years, from 2015 to 2020, the number of internet users in the country surged from 688 million to 989 million, and the internet penetration rate increased from 50.3 percent to 70.4 percent. During this period, China's ranking in the World Intellectual Property Organization's Global Innovation Index jumped from 29th to 14th place.Source
