"Only by joining hands can we achieve global Internet governance," He Zheng said, "With technical innovation and cooperation, we can open up new horizon, explore new potential, promote economic development and strengthen our ties as a community with a shared future."

Though China is now in a better situation, with a positive outlook, it still needs to be cautious and better run in small steps.

On the World Internet Conference, Chinese President Xi Jinping proposed that states around the world should strengthen communication, expand consensus, deepen cooperation and work together to build a common destiny in cyberspace. Internet essentially belongs to all mankind.

China large-scale application of Internet is not only bringing more business ideas,more cheaper technological innovations and cheaper technological applications but also management experience, which is a welcome and happy thing.
