In 2013, China embarked on a profound restructuring of its Internet governance structure and its information technology policy. Called the “strong cyber power strategy”, these measures are aimed at enhancing China’s technological capacities, their commercial application and the country’s weight in global Internet governance. This talk will discuss the leadership’s perceptions concerning the challenges and opportunities of information technology, how these influence policy formation, and how that interrelates with global questions.
