China shuts 50,000 illegal internet cafes
font size    

China has shut-down nearly 50,000 internet cafes last year, that were operating without a license.

The nationwide campaign was led by the State Industry and Commerce Administration.

By the end of last year, a total of 47,000 illegal internet cafe's had been closed.

However, the problem of illegal cyber cafes in small towns and the countryside's remains a problem.

Another problem is that some internet cafes are operating under the disguise of computer training schools, and some of the caf��'s that had been shut down have re-opened.

Lan Shiyong is an official with the Administration.

"The industry and commerce administration at all levels should work to prevent the spread of illegal internet cafes into the countryside and suburban areas. More inspections should be taken to scrutinize those which have been closed. We also ask the public to join us in the campaign and report the cases of illegal internet bars vigorously."

China now has more than 100 thousand cyber cafes.

Inappropriate conduct on the internet in the illegal internet bars has been a rising concern in the country.
