Organized by the Cyberspace Administration of China, the Natioanl Development and Reform Commission and the regional government of Ningxia, the two-day conference will kick off on Sept. 5.
The conference encompasses a high-level forum, a seminar regarding "Belt and Road Initiative" international opportunities and a financing promotion event of Internet projects.
Wen Jianguo, deputy director of the regional cyberspace bureau said the forum will invite officials, entrepreneurs, experts and scholars at home and abroad to give speeches on diverse topics, including the construction of information infrastructure and new Internet technologies.
The seminar, which is expected to become a platform for exchanges among political, business and academic circles, will discuss and deepen the understanding of the Belt and Road policies, as well as explore opportunities for development and cooperation.
