(People's Daily Online)    14:20, January 27, 2015

"By the end of 2014, China's population of Internet users had reached 648 million, and the Internet economy accounted for 7 percent of GDP, the highest in recent years," said Jin Jian, deputy director and deputy chief engineer of the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) at the 2015 China Internet Industry Summit in Beijing last Thursday.

Currently, there are about 900 million active websites and 300 million registered domain names in the world. China's burgeoning Internet user population had reached 648 million by the end of 2014.

China's mobile Internet has developed into a global mammoth both in scale and application content.

Four Chinese companies are included in the world's top ten as measured by market capitalization. With the rapid development of the Internet economy in 2013, China's Internet economy accounted for 3.3 percent of GDP and the online retail turnover surpassed the United States for the first time, to rank first in the world.

In 2014, the Internet economy accounted for 7 percent of GDP and Internet consumption became a new engine for GDP growth. In addition, a CNNIC report shows that 74 percent of Internet users have encountered security incidents in the past six months. Data security has become more important as more terminals access the Internet.
