General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out: “We must focus on leading industries, accelerate the cultivation of emerging industries, transform and upgrade traditional industries, develop modern service industries, and seize opportunities for the development of the digital economy.” In recent years, with cloud computing, big data, Internet of Things, and mobile Emerging digital technologies represented by the Internet and artificial intelligence are developing rapidly, accelerating their maturity and commercial transformation, and the digital economy has become the most active, innovative, growing, and influential industrial field in economic development. China’s digital economy is at the forefront of the world in terms of industrial scale, technological level, platform influence, and the number of unicorn companies, and its role as an engine of economic growth continues to increase. During the “14th Five-Year Plan” and a period in the future, we must fully, accurately and fully implement the new development concept, seize the opportunities for the development of the digital economy, enhance the core capabilities of the development of the digital economy, improve the quality of the development of the digital economy, and further create new advantages in the digital economy of our country .

The status quo and trends of the global digital economy

In the early 1990s, with the successive completion of the ICP /IP protocol and the World Wide Web (World Wide Web) protocol, the Internet began a rapid pace of commercialization. Various new business models and Internet services were developed and introduced to the market. A large number of Internet companies. In response to this phenomenon, some scholars have put forward the concept of “digital economy”. After the outbreak of the international financial crisis in 2008, with the popularization of 3G mobile communication networks and the emergence of mobile smart terminals, the development of the digital economy has entered the mobile phase, and new business models and models such as the sharing economy and platform economy have grown rapidly. In recent years, as big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and other technologies have developed and entered commercial applications, the enabling role of digital technology has been further strengthened, and the penetration of various industries in the national economy has been accelerated, and the economy has been digitized and networked. , Transformation in the direction of intelligence. The scale and scope of the digital economy have been greatly expanded, covering a wealth of products, services, business models, formats and industries supported by digital technology and data as an important production factor. Driven by its own internal development laws and policies of various countries, the development of the digital economy presents the following characteristics and trends.

Disruptive innovation occurs frequently. The technological innovation of traditional industries is dominated by gradual incremental innovation, and the dominant technology will remain for a long time after the emergence of the dominant technology. At present, a new round of technological revolution and industrial transformation represented by digital technology is advancing by leaps and bounds. The digital economy is constantly producing new technologies and entering the stage of engineering and commercialization, and some more cutting-edge technologies are gestating and gaining momentum. . The maturity and application of new technologies has given birth to new products, new models, and new business formats, which have impacted and replaced original products, models, and business formats, and have also driven a number of emerging companies to grow rapidly in new fields, and have had an impact on existing industries. The industrial competition pattern has been reconstructed.

The industry’s enabling role has been enhanced. Digital technology is a typical general purpose technology that can be widely used in various industries in the national economy. With the continuous improvement of digital infrastructure, the continuous maturity of new-generation digital technologies such as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence, the accelerated integration of digital technologies with various industries in the national economy has further strengthened the enabling role of the industry and profound changes in the combination of elements, organizational structure, and production of enterprises Ways, business processes, business models, customer relationships, product forms, etc., to accelerate the process of quality change, efficiency change, and power change in various industries.

Competition in the global technology industry has intensified. In recent years, major countries in the world have spared no effort to strengthen their layout in digital technology innovation, technical standards and international rule-making, seeking to seize opportunities in the global digital economy competition. On the one hand, the digital economy is growing fast and has great development potential, and it has increasingly become an important driving force for the economic development of various countries and an important pillar of the national economy. On the other hand, a new generation of information technology will promote the formation of a society where everything is interconnected and data resources become an important source of value. The control of key digital technologies, equipment, platforms and data is directly related to personal privacy and information security, industrial security, and political security. , National security and other aspects of national security. Therefore, the digital economy has become the focus of global competition.

The governance of the digital economy has been continuously strengthened. While digital technology promotes economic growth, enriches and facilitates people’s lives, it also creates problems such as infringement of personal privacy, platform monopoly and unfair competition, disorderly expansion of capital, and insufficient protection of labor rights. In recent years, the world’s major digital economy powers have begun to strengthen the governance of the digital economy, promote data security legislation, increase anti-monopoly efforts, strengthen scientific and technological ethics, encourage technological advancement, enhance the inclusiveness of the digital economy, and strive to make society better and better. Fully share the fruits of the development of the digital economy.

The international status and advantages of China’s digital economy

In recent years, relying on the domestic ultra-large-scale market, China has accelerated infrastructure construction, strengthened technological innovation, and promoted innovation and entrepreneurship, and promoted the rapid development of China’s digital economy. It has formed obvious advantages in the consumer Internet and other fields, and has become the main force to promote the development of the world’s digital economy. .

The digital infrastructure is complete. China has the world’s largest and most extensive 4G network. The number of 4G base stations accounts for more than half of the total number of 4G base stations in the world. Use it, and can afford the Internet. The construction of big data and cloud computing centers has maintained a momentum of rapid growth, and new infrastructure such as the industrial Internet has developed rapidly, and the supporting functions for the digital development of small and medium-sized enterprises have been continuously enhanced.

The digital economy is large. According to the calculations of the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, the scale of China’s digital economy in 2020 will be close to 5.4 trillion U.S. dollars, second only to the United States and second in the world. In terms of the core industries of the digital economy, China is the country with the largest value-added scale of computer communications and other electronic equipment manufacturing and the largest export scale of information and communication technology products.

Strong digital platform companies. Due to network effects, platform companies that are dominant in various market segments have become the main corporate form of the digital economy. The United States has the world’s leading Internet platform company. A number of Internet technology companies have also emerged in China, ranking among the top in the world in terms of user scale and capital market value.

New enterprises were born one after another. Innovation and entrepreneurship in the field of China’s digital economy are very active, and new companies based on new technologies, new products, new models, and new business formats are constantly being born. In terms of business models, China’s original and leading business models have emerged in some areas such as mobile payment. In the subdivisions accepted by the market, some start-ups have developed rapidly, the number of users has grown rapidly, attracted a large amount of investment, and the value of the capital market has continued to increase.

Digital technology is advancing rapidly. The innovation capability of China’s digital economy is rapidly increasing, the number of 5G core patents ranks first in the world, and the commercialization and large-scale application of 5G mobile communication technology is the world leader. Relying on the rapid development of the consumer Internet and massive amounts of data, China’s Internet companies have derived advanced digital technologies such as big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence. The number of papers and patents in the field of artificial intelligence ranks among the top in the world. The “Shenwei·Taihuzhiguang” supercomputer is the first time. Realize tens of millions of cores in parallel first-principles calculation simulation, and artificial intelligence technologies such as image recognition and speech recognition are in the forefront of the world. Breakthroughs have been made in cutting-edge technologies such as quantum communication and quantum computing. The “Mozi” has realized non-relayed thousand-kilometer-level quantum key distribution, 76-photon quantum computing prototype “Nine Chapters”, 62-bit programmable superconducting quantum computing prototype The aircraft “Zuchongzhi” was successfully launched.

At the same time, we must also realize that there are still problems in the development of China’s digital economy, such as regional, industrial and enterprise development imbalances, and innovation capabilities, internationalization levels, platform enterprise leadership, and industrial chain value chain control need to be further improved; key figures The technical foundation is relatively weak, and core technologies such as precision sensors, integrated circuits, operating systems, industrial software, databases, and open source platforms rely heavily on foreign countries. Under the new situation, we must adhere to the core position of innovation in the overall situation of China’s modernization drive, take scientific and technological independence and self-reliance as a strategic support for national development, strive to enhance China’s scientific and technological independent innovation capabilities, and concentrate efforts to overcome the “stuck neck” problem of key core technologies and make up for it. Weaknesses in the development of the digital economy, to achieve greater development of the digital economy.

Enhance core capabilities and create new advantages in the development of China’s digital economy

Facing the current status and trends of the global digital economy development and the advantages and disadvantages of China’s digital economy development, we must seize the opportunities for the development of the digital economy, and thoroughly implement the “Fourteenth Five-Year Plan” and the 2035 Vision Goal Outline for “Building a Digital Economy” New advantages” decision-making deployment.
