Yang Hua, Secretary General of the Internet Plus Alliance, pointed out in his speech that “Internet +” as a new economic form, is the new form of new development under the innovation 2.0 powered by Internet; but also it reflects the economic and social development evolved in the innovation-driven knowledge society. In recent years, China has achieved dramatic progress in the new generation of information technology and cross-border integration represented by Internet technology. Under the guidance of the Government’s innovative development policy, some industries in China have already taken the lead in the world. However, at the same time, there are shortcomings or weakness in inter-communication between traditional industries and Internet companies. The Internet Plus Alliance will work to facilitate the bilateral and multilateral integration and innovation.

Ahead of the “Internet +” collaborative research and development seminar, there was launching ceremony of Greater Bay Area Office of Internet Plus Alliance (IPA), which is situated in Shenzhen Digital Technology Park and expected to take full advantage of the talents, technology and industry-friendly environment in Guangdong, Hongkong and Macao Greater Bay Area.
