Think Tank Report: More 'Democratic' Internet Governance Needed in China

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks in a congratulatory letter to the Fourth World Internet Conference, which opened Sunday in the east China town of Wuzhen.

Wang said China is willing to conform to the historic opportunities brought by the development of the internet and use the digital economy as an important driving force to promote the openness, cooperation, exchange, and sharing in cyberspace and build a community of common future in cyberspace.

Xi Jinping, President of China said that the country will not close its door to the global internet on December 3.

China ranked 23rd for cybersecurity and 27th for infrastructure, with both categories headed by Singapore, which according to the report offers the most stable mobile broadband connections and provides 82 per cent 4G coverage.

China has been pushing forward for a unified cyber governance body that would look into the internet governance of nations, but other countries and interested parties are against this strict stance.

According to a state-supported internet think tank on Monday, China is now the fifth country amongst 38 nations worldwide which has a standard for cyber governance. China hopes to strengthen its power in establishing global internet governance.

Tim Cook helped kick off China's World Internet Conference today, giving a keynote address centered around privacy, security, and humanity, according to Bloomberg. The Cyberspace Administration of China said the new measures, which include increased surveillance of messaging apps and tighter controls on the use of virtual private networks, were created to maintain social order and protect socialist values.

In June, China introduced a new national cybersecurity law that requires foreign firms to store data locally and submit to data surveillance measures. Business groups said the law was harsher than comparable policies in Europe and the United States.
