Over the past year, the commercialization of China's Internet progressed rapidly; the integration of telecom, radio and TV, and Internet networks brought new opportunities; and the capital market provided new financing channels for Chinese Internet companies. Therefore, the Chinese government is fully confident of China's Internet, an official said on Monday.

Qian Xiaoqian, deputy director of the State Council Information Office, said this during his speeches delivered at the opening ceremony of the two-day fourth U.S.-China Industry Internet Forum (UCIIF), which kicked off on Monday.

Qian also analyzed the five characteristics of China's Internet development in the future at the forum. Among other points, Qian stressed China's Internet market will always remain open and the Chinese government sincerely welcome U.S. companies to share the opportunities and fruits of China's booming Internet market. Facts proved only by abiding by Chinese law and respecting Chinese traditional culture, will the foreign-invested Internet enterprises have good prospects in China.

Chinese and U.S. governments should establish a bilateral exchange mechanism under which the two parties should exchange ideas, experiences and practices on issues of mutual concern such as Internet policy, law and security and conduct equal consultations to enhance understanding and strengthen cooperation, Qian said.

China and the United States share many common interests in Internet fields. Although the two countries have some different views on Internet issues, they should not become the barriers of exchanges and cooperation between the two countries, Qian said. China and the U.S. should respect and trust each other, promote understanding in equal exchanges and overstep the differences in mutually beneficial cooperation.

Headed by Qian Xiaoqian, deputy director of State Council Information Office of China and Robert Hormats, Undersecretary of State for Economic, Energy and Agricultural Affairs of the United States, the forum is the most influential platform of the Internet industry of the two countries.

More than 30 officials and 200 people from the Internet industry and Chinese and foreign media were present at U.S.-China Industry Internet Forum (UCIIF).
