Fostering new growth momentum and upgrading traditional industries has been high on China's development agenda, experts noted. The remarks came ahead of the annual Central Economic Work Conference, which is usually convened in December to map out economic development priorities and set the tone for macroeconomic policy the following year. "Innovative digital technologies like 5G, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and the internet of things are finding a wide range of applications across various industries, such as manufacturing and agriculture, and speeding up integration with the real economy," said Wu Hequan, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Engineering. He said facilitating the growth of the digital economy is significant in building up new competitive edges, speeding up digital transformation, upgrading traditional industries and better serving the real economy.

The National Data Administration said on Thursday that it will continue to disclose notable investment cases regarding platform enterprises together with other government departments, and support such enterprises to play a more active part in bolstering the development of the digital economy. The administration also highlighted the significant role platform enterprises have played in promoting economic growth, creating jobs and competing on the global stage, which will help establish a modern industrial system, and foster the high-quality development of the real economy.

JD will speed up the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries and make efforts to build a modern industrial system, Xu said.
