Release time:

Beijing will become one of the first comprehensive information consumption demonstration cities in China. On June 20th, with the support of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the '2019 National Information Consumption City Tour Beijing Station Activity' was launched in Beijing, organized by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Economy and Information Technology, China Telecom Beijing, and others. Dong Dajian, Deputy Director of the Information Technology and Software Services Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, disclosed that the scale of information consumption in China is expected to reach 6 trillion yuan next year, achieving an average annual growth of over 11%, and driving output in related fields to reach 15 trillion yuan.

Information consumption is entering ordinary households and every corner of society. Vice Director Dong Dajian introduced that with the deep integration of Internet technology and the economy and society, China's information consumption is developing rapidly, accelerating the transition from online to a new form of integration between online and offline, and driving rapid growth in consumption in other fields.

'It is necessary to expand the demonstration and driving role of Beijing in the series of national information consumption activities, which will promote the deep integration of information consumption and mass entrepreneurship and innovation, 'Internet plus', and promote the innovation of information consumption products, formats and models,' said Dong Dajian.


China Telecom Beijing showcased its innovative achievements in 5G application scenarios on the same day, and cloud VR games allowed citizens to personally experience the new learning and entertainment experiences brought by 5G. Under the low latency characteristics of 5G technology, China Telecom's 'facial recognition AR glasses' demonstrate advantages such as 'first view and freeing hands', and can provide real-time recognition services for personnel, vehicles, etc.

With the extensive construction of 5G base stations, China Telecom Beijing will also launch a 'handshake service' between 5G base stations, traffic lights, regular vehicles, and autonomous vehicles.

Regarding this, Manager Wang from the Government Enterprise Customer Department of China Telecom Beijing explained that most of the tested autonomous vehicles are equipped with body sensing and detection devices to identify traffic light signals and the distance between front and rear vehicles.

'In the future, true autonomous vehicles cannot still be equipped with several 'big nose' type probes. At that time, 5G base stations would be connected to autonomous vehicles and traffic lights through vehicle networking, automatically reporting traffic lights and the situation of front and rear vehicles to the onboard computer, achieving true unmanned driving.' Manager Wang said that as long as there is 5G signal, even in the face of rain, snow, fog, and dust, autonomous vehicles can be heard and seen clearly.


On the same day, the first Beijing Information Consumption Festival was launched simultaneously, and the Beijing Information Consumption Community, initiated by more than ten enterprises including Meituan,, Xiaomi, Tencent, etc., was officially established. The members will create a more dynamic new ecosystem of information consumption in Beijing, bringing a deep integration experience of technology and life to Beijing citizens.

The event showcased new products, formats, models, and applications of information consumption. By strengthening the deep integration of information technology and consumption, it is expected to further expand and upgrade information consumption.

At the meeting, Chaoyang District showcased the application of information technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence, integrating government and social resources, and developing Chaoyang's 'urban brain'. This information platform will help improve the level of digital government governance in urban management, economic development, and people's livelihood services.

'At present, China has leading technologies in mobile internet and AI, and domestic digital technology companies have full opportunities to lead the future of global enterprise services,' said Wei Haixing, the head of operations at JD Group's Global Supply Chain Innovation Center, at the meeting
