The Second World Internet Conference launched by China has come to an end on Friday. The three-day high-level Internet conference located in Wuzhen also caught the eyes of overseas residents.

David Gann, Vice President of Development & Innovation at Imperial College London said "China's digital businesses are investing heavily in R&D and rapidly expanding their technological capabilities. Hosting the World Internet Conference is a testament to the significant role innovation is playing in the Chinese economy and beyond."

"Businesses like Xiaomi, Tencent, Baidu, Alibaba, and Huawei are driving technological change and innovating in partnership with universities and businesses worldwide. As long as China continues to adapt to global technological and social changes, its people and businesses are set to enjoy ever greater influences online,” he added.

China has witnessed a rapid development of its Internet industry over the past two decades. As of July 2015, the number of Internet users had reached 668 million, the most in the world, according to official figures. All cities and towns, and 93.5 percent of administrative villages in China now have access to the Internet.
