Editor's Note: The World Internet Conference in the river town of Wuzhen in East China's Zhejiang province has aroused public interest about the status of the country's Internet development. Cyberspace management, Internet innovation and development were hot topics during the conference. China Daily invited five renowned Internet experts to share their views about the future. Cao Yin and Su Zhou report. 

Q1:What is the top priority, or most urgent problem, facing those managing the Internet in China?

Q2:Do you have any solutions to the problem?

Q3:How should China react when Western countries blame it for major cyberattacks?

Q4:Could you provide a blueprint for the development of Chinese cyberspace over the next five years?


Zuo Xiaodong

Vice-president of the China Information Security Research Institute

A1: The most important problem currently in China is how to balance the relationship between cybersecurity and the development of the Internet. If the two parts cannot be tackled competently, security risks will increase with the fast pace of online developments.

A2: To reach a balance, we should make Internet development a priority, while ensuring cyberspace safety by improving cybertechnology. If we can balance them well, I believe the problem will be solved.

A3: Our country has always been responsible in handling cyberspace, and our governance is rooted in an open, peaceful and safe approach. We are not like some countries that frequently blame others, but were themselves attackers. We hope to quickly create international rules in governing cyberspace. Only when we have the rules, can every country protect its own cyberspace interests and improve its own Internet development.

A4: The future of cyberspace, in my mind, is a place that has much stronger security and where the Internet economy is more developed. What I am looking forward to seeing is cyberspace that's balanced between security and development
