Hi! Welcome to “Unique Chinese Words”!
The word we talk about today is “Cyber Power”.
Chinese President Xi Jinping stresses at the first meeting of the central Internet security and informatization leading group, Feb 27, 2014 that Internet security and informatization is a major strategic issue concerning a country's security and development as well as people's life and work. China has been striving to build itself into a major cyber power.
China has the world's largest number of Internet users but it still lags behind in development of Internet technologies. The digital gap between rural and urban areas remains large and the average bandwidth enjoyed by each Chinese is far less than that in some developed countries. Internet development in China is still facing a serious bottleneck.
In Xi's view, building a cyber power calls for domestically developed solid technology, rich and comprehensive information services, prosperous cyber cultures, sound infrastructure, high-caliber talents working in Internet security and information, as well as international cooperation.
