The First World Internet Conference held in the rivertown of Wuzhen called for global Internet interconnectivity and shared governance by all.

China is ready to work with other countries to deepen international cooperation, respect sovereignty on the Internet and uphold cyber security, said President Xi Jinping in a message of congratulations on Wednesday.

Considering the openness and interconnection of network, China is calling for strengthening international cooperation on cyberspace security, stability and prosperity.

In fact, according to official media report, more than 40 countries and regions in the world have issued cyber security strategies. For instance, in the latest two years, neighboring countries such as ROK, Japan, India and DPRK have all issued strategies for cyber security.

In this matter, China chooses not to turn cyber space into another battlefield, or capitalize on virtual reality, but to advocate a peaceful, secure, open and cooperative cyber space and support relevant international rules under the framework of the UN.

Looking at the world, the construction of a safe cyberspace would be a complex and long-term task. Some kinds of conflicts and challenges will be inevitable. Under the circumstance, China has obligation and condition to conduct better international cooperation, take part in the global activities and is already on its way to provide safer cyber environment for all.

With "An Interconnected World Shared and Governed by All" as its theme, the three-day conference covers issues on new media, mobile Internet, cross-border e-commerce, cyber terrorism, Internet financing, cyberspace security and Internet governance.

The conference saw roughly 1,000 Internet professionals, officials and experts from more than 100 countries and regions in attendance.
