On September 13, the State Council Information Office held a press conference on “promoting the construction of a strong manufacturing country and a network power building to help build a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way”. Relevant persons in charge of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology responded to the issue of Internet companies blocking URL links, and deployed 5G network construction, new energy vehicle enterprise development, and auto chip manufacturing follow-up work at the meeting.
Xiao Yaqing, Minister of Industry and Information Technology, said that my country has embarked on a new journey of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will adhere to the path of new industrialization with Chinese characteristics, forge ahead, pioneer and innovate, and work hard to promote the construction of a manufacturing power and a network power, and make new and greater contributions to the comprehensive construction of a modern socialist country.
Supervise enterprises to do a good job
Rectification of the problem of blocking URL links
In July this year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology held a special rectification action for the Internet industry to mobilize and deploy a video and telephone conference, and launched a six-month special rectification action. In terms of disrupting market order, special rectification actions focused on rectifying problems such as malicious blocking of website links and interference with the operation of other companies’ products or services, including unjustified restrictions on normal access to other website links and the implementation of discriminatory blocking measures.
“Blocking website links is one of the key rectification issues. Ensuring normal access to legitimate website links is a basic requirement for the development of the Internet.” Zhao Zhiguo, spokesperson for the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and Director of the Information and Communications Administration Bureau, said at the press conference that there is no justified restriction. The identification, analysis, and normal access of URL links affect user experience, damage user rights, and disrupt market order.
According to Zhao Zhiguo, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is currently guiding relevant Internet companies to carry out self-inspection and rectification in accordance with the special action plan. However, during the self-examination and rectification, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology learned that some Internet companies still have a certain gap between their understanding of the problem of blocking URL links and the requirements for special actions. To this end, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has adopted various forms such as administrative guidance meetings to further help enterprises realize that interconnection is an inevitable choice for the high-quality development of the Internet industry, and that enabling users to use the Internet smoothly and safely is also the direction of the Internet industry’s efforts.
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology requires that companies be able to pragmatically promote different types of problems such as blocking URL links in instant messaging in accordance with the rectification requirements, and they can be resolved step by step and in stages.
Zhao Zhiguo said that in the next step, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will focus on key rectification issues. The first is to strengthen administrative guidance, and continue to convene administrative guidance meetings and other methods to urge enterprises to implement rectification and reform. The second is to strengthen supervision and inspection, incorporate the problems collected by various clue channels into the ledger, and use them as the focus of supervision and inspection, and ensure that the problems can be rectified through various methods such as on-site inspection, dial test verification, and technical testing. The third is to strengthen lawful handling. For companies that have not been completely rectified, they will also take measures to rectify a number of typical violations, investigate and deal with a number of typical violations, and promote the formation of an open, standardized, and secure Internet that is well developed environment.
It is worth noting that after the conclusion of this press conference, Tencent responded that it firmly supported the decision of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and implemented it in phases and steps with safety as the bottom line.
Encourage new energy vehicle companies
Mergers and reorganizations to become bigger and stronger
Zhao Zhiguo introduced that my country has built the world’s largest 5G network. As of August, a total of 1.037 million 5G base stations have been built, covering all prefecture-level cities across the country, as well as more than 95% of counties and urban areas and 35% of towns and townships. In addition, 5G mobile phone products are accelerating penetration. From January to August this year, domestic 5G mobile phone shipments reached 168 million units, a year-on-year increase of 80%. Especially in August, the proportion of 5G mobile phones has increased to 74%.
Zhao Zhiguo said that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will focus on three aspects to carry out its work. One is to consolidate the network foundation. Adhere to moderate advancement, comprehensively promote the construction of 5G networks, and accelerate the expansion of coverage to towns and villages. Deepen 5G co-construction and sharing, and promote inter-network roaming. 5G coverage through key areas such as transportation hubs and commercial centers. The second is to expand application scenarios. Facing the three major areas of new information consumption, real economy, and people’s livelihood services, focusing on multiple key industries such as industry, transportation, medical care, agriculture, and cultural tourism, and cultivating a batch of typical demonstrations of 5G integration applications. The third is to optimize the ecological environment. Promote the development and industrialization of products such as 5G chips, modules, and terminals for industry applications.
Speaking of the development of the new energy automobile industry, Xiao Yaqing pointed out that now the number of new energy automobile companies is too large, and they are in a small but scattered state. In the next step, new energy automobile companies should be bigger and stronger. It is necessary to give full play to the role of the market, encourage enterprise mergers and reorganizations to become bigger and stronger, and further increase industrial concentration. All parties have a high enthusiasm for the development of new energy vehicles, and they have greatly promoted the development of new energy vehicles, but they must also be aware of the high technical content of new energy vehicles. Therefore, resources should be market-oriented as much as possible to avoid dispersion.
In addition, Tian Yulong, a member of the party group, chief engineer, and spokesperson of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, also responded to the issue of “core shortage” in the automotive industry. He pointed out that the tightness of the chip supply chain will still exist for some time, and the current problem is more serious. The main measures are to ensure stable operation, accelerate transformation and upgrade, and continue to deepen open cooperation to ensure the supply of automotive chips.
Tian Yulong said that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will strengthen the monitoring of the development of the automotive industry and the supply capacity of chip manufacturing, analysis and judgment, and targeted solutions to the current shortages of auto companies, and actively support chip manufacturers to accelerate the improvement of supply capabilities and accelerate the operation of alternative solutions. Use, optimize the layout of the entire industry chain, make the chip supply capacity form a stable supply in the long-term, and solve the problem fundamentally.
