China's Information Revolution: Managing the Economic and Social Transformation


Informatization is the information and communications technology (ICT)-driven transformation of an economy and society. This process involves investing significantly in economic and social infrastructure that facilitates the use of ICT by government, industry, civil society, and the general public.

A country’s informatization strategy can help develop an enabling environment for technological innovation, a central determinant of the ability to compete successfully in the global economy.

Since 1997, China has devoted considerable resources to ICT development. China has the world’s largest telecommunications market, and its IT industry has been an engine of economic growth—growing two to three times faster than GDP over the past 10 years.

This book highlights several key issues that need to be addressed decisively in the second half of this decade.
