Thanks to Mr. Liu Liehong's briefing. Next I'll give the floor to Mr. Chen Zhemin.

Chen Zhemin:

Ladies and gentlemen, media friends, good afternoon.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. On the eve of the National Day celebration, the 2019 China Cybersecurity Week will be held in Tianjin. This demonstrates support and trust toward Tianjin, and we feel greatly honored and encouraged. Here, on behalf of the CPC Tianjin Municipal Committee and the Tianjin Municipal People's Government, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, the Office of the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission, and the State Council Information Office as well as to all media friends.

The CPC Tianjin Municipal Committee and the Tianjin Municipal People's Government place great importance to this year's China Cybersecurity Week. Comrade Li Hongzhong, secretary of the CPC Tianjin Municipal Committee, has put forth clear requirements. Sixty-two departments of the municipality are working closely together, and all the preparations for the event are progressing in an orderly manner. Just now, Mr. Liu Liehong briefed you on the overall situation and the arrangement for the major activities. Compared with those of previous years, this year's cybersecurity week has the following highlights and characteristics.

First, it is a grand event that is full of dynamism. We will focus on improving the self-developed ecosystem and building a secure and credible system. We will organize the "Fifth Space" Cybersecurity Innovation Competition oriented toward domestic universities and internet enterprises in the forms of CTF (Capture The Flag) attack and defense confrontation, innovative application design and development, and strive to find and train more excellent professionals in cybersecurity. At present, 175 teams from universities and enterprises have registered for the competition.

Second, it is a grand event where people can experience smart technology. We will integrate intelligent elements into each exhibition area, and launch a number of intelligent applications and interactive experiences, such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). We will also hold the "black technology" scenario experience activities in the China-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city, so that audiences will have fresh and new experiences.

Third, it is a grand event for all citizens to participate in. We have organized a series of activities in communities, schools and villages to make the event known to every household. We have placed the mascot of the event "Jin Xiaowei" in 85 community e-stations and set up 10 cybersecurity pop-up stores in densely populated areas such as parks and business plazas. We will make use of the postal service and postal savings outlets throughout the countryside to spread the knowledge of internet finance security among people and help them increase their overall awareness of cybersecurity. We also plan to build an "internet central block park," stage a Tianjin-style comedy on cybersecurity, and launch a group of cybersecurity-related activities in forms that people like to see and hear.

Fourth, it is a grand event to publicize cybersecurity in an all-round and multi-faceted way. We will employ all types of resources, and use all sorts of channels like newspapers, the internet, radio, TV, and mobile phones to spread cybersecurity knowledge among the people. We will launch a setting sail ceremony for the cruise ship Wang An (Cybersecurity) and a light show named "Lighting the Haihe River and Starting the Future", build various platforms for network security education, and hold a contest on network security knowledge. All the approaches are to ensure that the message of cybersecurity finds its way deep into the hearts of the people.

All media friends, a grand cybersecurity event with an integration of "conventions, exhibitions, contests and experiences" is approaching. It will gather top professionals, highlight interactive participation, and lead the development of industries. On behalf of the CPC Tianjin Municipal Committee and the Tianjin Municipal People's Government, I sincerely invite you to participate in the 2019 China Cybersecurity Week. Tianjin is ready. We are looking forward to your arrival in Tianjin. Thank you.
