China Daily:

My question is for Mr. Liu. We have noticed that this is the sixth time the China Cybersecurity Week is being held. Compared with the previous five years', what is the main feature or highlight of this year's event? Can you tell us more about it? Thank you.

Liu Liehong:

Thank you for your question. Mr. Chen and I have introduced some information about this year's highlights and features a while ago. We believe there are three major aspects:

First, the China Cybersecurity Week this year recognizes major achievements in cybersecurity in 70 years since the PRC was founded, especially in recent years since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012. This is the main theme this time. In recent years, guided by General Secretary Xi Jinping's important ideas on building China's strength in cyberspace, new progress has been made in cybersecurity work, and the capacity to safeguard cyberspace security has been greatly improved. This industry has also seen rapid growth, and the development of disciplines and training of talent have become much more efficient. All these developments have led to a remarkable improvement in the whole society's cybersecurity awareness and safeguarding skills, as well as in China's international voice and influence in cyber space.

Second, this year's Cybersecurity Week focuses on the protection of individual information. Just now we discussed that individual information protection is the feature and also a highlight of this year's event. The Cybersecurity Expo, the Forum for Cybersecurity Technologies, and some themed events during the week this year, such as Individual Information Protection Day, Telecommunication Day, and Financial Day, have made this topic their key component.

Third, this year's event covers multiple fields through various activities. Through online and offline methods, we have organized and completed publicity events related to cybersecurity in nine aspects including community, countryside, enterprises, government agencies, schools, military camps, families, construction fields, and websites. This has greatly encouraged netizens' participation. We are also holding the "Fifth Space" competition for cybersecurity innovation capacity, the "Payment-Clearing Cup" micro-video contest, the National Teenager Cybersecurity Series, the launch ceremony for "Ship Cybersecurity," etc. All these events have fully mobilized the participation of all sectors, and greatly improved the awareness and skills to safeguard cybersecurity. Thank you.

Xi Yanchun:

Thank you, Mr. Chen and Mr. Liu. Thank you, everyone. That ends today's briefing.
