Promote global integration with information circulation, promote industrial transformation with technological breakthroughs, empower and increase efficiency with innovation and application for governance, and add luster to civilization with content production. As one of the greatest inventions of the twentieth century, the Internet has truly transformed the world into a global village. However, today’s world is undergoing major tests of multilateral and unilateral, open and closed, cooperation and confrontation; cyberspace is facing serious challenges of unity and fragmentation, development and regression, peace and chaos. 51 years after the invention of the Internet, “What’s wrong with the world, what should we do” has become a question of the times for countless insightful people.
The creative destruction of technology has brought about the restructuring of domestic and international forces, and the uneven sharing of development has contributed to national and global social confrontation. Information technology innovation is pushing mankind into the third industrial revolution, injecting strong momentum into economic, cultural and social change. The application of network technology also drives deeper competition and collisions around the world, which poses a great threat to sovereignty, security and development interests. In the face of the crisis and opportunity of breakthroughs in the technology industry, in the face of the governance and chaos of the development of cyberspace, focusing on the common concern of the future and destiny of the world, and adhering to the universal morality of human development and well-being, Chinese President Xi Jinping put forward the concept of “building a community of destiny in cyberspace” for the first time at the second World Internet Conference, and the world interconnection In 2019, the organizing committee of the Cyberconference released the concept paper “Working Together to Build a Community of Destiny in Cyberspace” and the “Action Initiative to Build a Community of Destiny in Cyberspace” on the occasion of the 2020 World Internet Conference · Internet Development Forum.
Building a community of destiny in cyberspace is the concrete embodiment and important practice of the concept of community of destiny for mankind in cyberspace, and also an inevitable choice to make the Internet better benefit mankind. One world, one Internet. President Xi Jinping pointed out that although different national conditions, different stages of Internet development and different practical challenges, the world has the same desire to promote the development of the digital economy, the same interests to meet the challenges of network security, and the same needs to strengthen cyberspace governance. The development of the Internet is borderless and borderless. Cyberspace has become the common home of mankind. People of all countries are in solidarity and have a stake in cyberspace. The international community should strengthen communication, expand consensus and deepen cooperation, adhere to the concept of global governance of joint discussion, co-construction and sharing, adhere to the discussion and management of global affairs by people of all countries, build cyberspace into a community of development, security, responsibility and interest for the benefit of all mankind, so as to achieve common promotion and security of development. Joint maintenance, governance, joint participation, and joint sharing of results.
Development is the first priority and applies to all countries. Information and communication technology accelerates integration and innovation, and digital empowerment accelerates penetration in various fields. However, the development level of different countries and regions in Internet popularization, infrastructure construction, technological innovation creation, security risk prevention, digital skills mastery and other aspects is extremely uneven, which seriously affects and restricts the information construction and digital transformation of countries around the world, especially developing countries and less developed countries. The digital divide is still in Deeply divided between urban and rural areas, wealth and poverty, and the developed and third worlds. To promote development together, we must accelerate the construction of global network infrastructure and promote interconnection. Adopt a more active, inclusive, coordinated and inclusive policy to promote the accelerated universalization of global network infrastructure and provide accessible, affordable and well-used network services for underdeveloped areas and low-income people. Strengthen policy coordination and promote the protection of online intellectual property rights. In the same fate of cyberspace, no global citizen can be left behind.
Security is the guarantee of development. A secure, stable and prosperous cyberspace is of great significance to all countries and even the world. In the real world, the smoke of war has not dissipated, the haze of terrorism is difficult to eliminate, and illegal crimes occur from time to time. The COVID-19 pandemic profoundly endangers global public health and safety. In cyberspace, arms races, military conflicts and even hostile and aggressive acts need to be prevented urgently. Cold war thinking, zero-sum games, double standards are difficult to abandon. Cyberattacks and large-scale surveillance threaten the world. Unprovoked cyberattacks and accusations between countries disturb the public. Trade protectionism, unilateralism and international bullying continue to occur. . Network security is a global challenge. No country can stay away from it and be alone. Maintaining network security is the common responsibility of the international community. To maintain security together, we must adhere to the international system with the United Nations at its core, abide by the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, respect each other’s security interests and major concerns in cyberspace, jointly curb the misuse of information technology, oppose cyber-monitoring and cyberattacks, oppose the arms race in cyberspace, and oppose the destruction of global property. Business chain and supply chain. There should be no double standards in maintaining cyber security. One country cannot be insecure while other countries are not safe, one part of the country is safe and the other part of the country is not safe, let alone seek its own so-called absolute security at the expense of the security of other countries.
Governance is not one-way rule, let alone arbitrary rule. The Internet is a common public good cherished by all mankind. To build a peaceful, safe, open, cooperative and orderly cyberspace, it is necessary to establish a multilateral, democratic and transparent global Internet governance system and realize the scientific concept, rationalization of structure and refinement of governance. In international cyberspace governance, we must adhere to the concept of working together, mutual trust and mutual benefit, and abandon the old concept of zero-sum game and winner-take-all. We must adhere to multilateral participation and multi-participation, give full play to the role of governments, international organizations, Internet enterprises, technological communities, non-governmental institutions, individual citizens and other subjects, and do not engage in unilateralism. , do not take the lead of one party or let several parties make the final say; it is necessary to build a platform for communication, establish a mechanism for dialogue and consultation, and formulate rules for global governance, so as to make the global Internet governance system more fair and reasonable, and reflect the will and interests of the majority of countries more balancedly. China holds the World Internet Conference in the hope of building a platform for global Internet sharing and co-governance to jointly promote the healthy development of the Internet.
The Internet is a product of human intelligence and should be the result that all citizens of the earth have the right to share. Cyberspace is the common home of mankind. The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China clearly states that the connotation of a community of human destiny is to build a world of “lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness and tolerance, clean and beauty”. President Xi Jinping pointed out that it is the common responsibility of the international community to develop, use and govern the Internet well, so that the Internet can better benefit mankind. Increase investment in global network infrastructure and improve the level of Internet interoperability; build an online cultural exchange and sharing platform to promote exchange and mutual learning; promote the innovative development of the digital economy and promote common prosperity; guarantee network security and promote orderly development; build a global cyberspace governance system to promote fairness and justice, just for the sake of reality. Now, regardless of small countries, poor and rich countries, regardless of the center edge, regardless of color and ethnic groups, can abandon hostile thinking, cross the digital divide, and share the Internet and the fruits of human civilization.
At present, a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation has been deeply developed. New applications and new formats such as artificial intelligence, big data and the Internet of Things are in the ascendant. The Internet has ushered in a stronger momentum of development and a broader development space. However, at the same time, the uncertainty of instability and uncertainty of the international situation has increased significantly. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the profound evolution of unprecedented changes in a century. Economic globalization has encountered countercurrents. Hegemonism poses a threat to world peace and development. Populism and exclusionism have risen, and protectionism and unilateralism prevail. The critical period of the reform of the global governance system of the Internet is likely to be a crossroads to the future and destiny of the world. Cooperation and disputes, construction and destruction, prosperity and chaos, peace and conflict, standing at a historic and important juncture and based on the common well-being of all mankind, all countries should follow the trend of the times, bravely assume development responsibilities, jointly meet risks and challenges, jointly promote international exchanges and cooperation in cyberspace, and strive to promote the construction of cyberspace with common destiny.
