Building a Community with a Shared Future in Cyberspace

The internet has turned the world into a global village and made the international community a highly interdependent community with a shared future. Xi Jinping has talked about his vision for a community with a shared future in cyberspace to all the World Internet Conferences held in China. He said that since cyberspace as a sphere of human activity belongs to humanity, its future should be decided by all countries of the world. To this end, he has proposed four principles for building a cyberspace community with a shared future: respecting cyber sovereignty, safeguarding security and peace, promoting openness and cooperation, and building a sound cyberspace order. He has also highlighted the need to (a) accelerate the development of a global internet infrastructure and promote interconnectivity; (b) create online platforms to facilitate cultural exchanges; (c) promote the development of the internet economy and encourage innovation; (d) ensure the internet security and orderly development; and (e) build a cyberspace governance system to ensure fairness and justice.

Building a community with a shared future in cyberspace needs the joint efforts made by the international community.
