2021 marked a pivotal year for the development of China's digital economy. On October 18, while presiding over the 34th group study session of the Political Bureau of the 19th CPC Central Committee, General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized 'Looking forward, we should take into consideration both the domestic and international situation, and both development and security, with a view to achieving the overall goal of national rejuvenation against a backdrop of global change on a scale unseen in a century. We should fully exploit our advantages in massive data and the diverse scenarios where it is applicable, and further integrate digital technology with the real economy. We should empower traditional industries to transform and upgrade, foster new industries and business forms and models, and improve, expand, and strengthen our digital economy.'
In 2021, Xi Jinping successively presided over the ninth meeting of the Central Commission for Financial and Economic Affairs and the 21st meeting of the Central Commission for Further Reform, which set out the orientation and drew a blueprint for the standardized and sound development of the platform economy, a new economic form that has been most active in the field of China's digital economy in recent years. As he emphasized, 'It is important to adhere to the correct political direction, proceed from the strategic perspective of building new competitive edges, pay equal attention to development and regulation, grasp the law governing the development of the platform economy, and establish a sound governance system for the platform economy'. It is also important to encourage enterprises to play a positive role in advancing technological progress, flourishing the market-based economy, bringing convenience to people's life, and engaging in international competition. In this year, the 14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of the Digital Economy was officially issued, and relevant ministries and commissions jointly introduced the Opinions on Promoting the Standardized, Healthy and Sustainable Development of Platform Economy.
As time goes by, it has been the middle of 2022 when the book is put for publication. In the past months, many new changes have taken place in the digital economy and the platform economy, embracing a more orderly and sound development. In the first half of this year, when the COVID-19 pandemic continued to spread in many parts of the country, we saw that the digital economy showcased its efficiency, flexibility and resilience in ensuring people's livelihood, stabilizing employment, promoting the resumption of work and market, and boosting consumer confidence.
On January 17 this year, Xi Jinping pointed out in his speech at a virtual session of the 2022 World Economic Forum, 'We need to move forward by following the logic of history, and develop by keeping pace with the trend of our times. Whatever the trials and tribulations, humanity will move on. We need to learn by comparing and analyzing long cycles of history, and see the change in things through the subtle and the minute. We need to foster new opportunities amid crises, open up new horizons on a shifting landscape, and pool great strengths to overcome difficulties and challenges.'
We hope this book could provide food for thought for readers, inspire them to reflect upon the trend of the times from details of the transition from digital life to digital society, and then contribute their wisdom and strength to the development of the digital economy.
