An International Internet Conference guest from Tonga said the most interesting part of President Xi's speech is the bright prospect the country looks forward to in 2020.

In his keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the 2nd World Internet Conference, Xi said that it is estimated that by 2020 broadband in China will basically cover all the villages thanks to the strategy, and more people will have access to the Internet.

"If that’s going to happen, it will be a very unique thing for China to accomplish," said Andrew To'imoana, director for Information Department of Tonga, who is attending the World Internet Conference that is being held in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province.

"It’s very unique for the conference to be held here in Wuzhen. You talk about the technology and advancing stuff, while you see a traditional way of living," he said.
