The Internet will facilitate China’s drive to achieve national rejuvenation and, to that end, the mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan have all “made positive explorations, achieved impressive headway and each had their own competitive edge”, said Ren Xianliang, deputy director of the Cyberspace Administration of China.
Ren made the remarks at the Cross-Straits & Hong Kong, Macao Internet Development Forum as part of the ongoing second World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, East China's Zhejiang province, Dec 16, 2015.
“Let the Internet become a bridge for promoting mutual understanding and trust,” Ren said. He said that more than 100 million people watched the live Internet broadcast of the historic meeting between President Xi Jinping andTaiwanleader Ma Ying-jeou inSingaporeon November 7, an example of the power of the Internet in promoting mutual understanding.
“One of my friends from Taiwan told me that through the live show and replays, mainland and Taiwan people had the opportunity to better know the two leaders”,” Ren shared his personal experience in his speech.
“A Hong Kong friend said that the Internet enables local people to better understand the situation in the mainland, which has helped offset the distorted description of the mainland,” he said.
