Internet civilization is a new form of civilization that has emerged as the Internet evolves. China has made great progress in building the country into a cyberpower by strengthening the construction of Internet civilization.
Laws and regulations have been created to ensure the safety and better quality of the Internet. For the past few years, the country has issued a Cybersecurity Law, Data Security Law, Personal Information Protection Law and other regulations to provide a safer cyberspace for netizens.
Regulations concerning the actions of netizens were also created as a deterrence, sending a firm message that the Internet is a space that is governed by laws.
China has taken concrete actions as well.
In response to the problems raised by the public, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) and other government departments have been continually launching specific campaigns to solve the problems, such as Operation Qinglang, the "Humiao" campaign for protecting teenagers online and the "Jingwang" campaign against hackers and telecoms fraud.
A platform for squashing rumors on the Internet was also set up.
President Xi Jinping called for extensively pooling positive forces and the strength of kindness and making joint efforts to create a better cyberspace in his congratulatory letter to the first China Internet Civilization Conference, which opened in Beijing on November 19.
Two months ago, CAC launched a proposal on boycotting rumors from the Internet together with several other counterparts, calling on society as a whole to join hands and tackle online rumors.
There have also been activities that promoted positive ethical values and a better online environment. Specific activities for teenagers were conducted, including a TV program and open classes, which helped them to maintain good mental health.
