Themed on "Connectivity and Shared Prosperity", the World Internet Conference (WIC) Digital Silk Road Development Forum will be held on April 16 in Xi'an, Northwest China's Shaanxi province.

For thousands of years, the Silk Road has forged new path facilitating exchanges among different countries, something it continues to do for countries along the Silk Road, achieving higher-quality development and common prosperity.

The host city of the WIC Digital Silk Road Development Forum, Xi'an, has made significant strides in deepening the Belt and Road cooperation. In 2023, Shaanxi projected that the province's digital economy expected to reach a scale of 1.4 trillion yuan, while Xi'an, the starting point of the ancient Silk Road, saw the added value of its core digital economic industries accounting for over 9 percent of its GDP the same year.

Through this forum, the WIC will continue to build a global platform for communication and cooperation, deepening exchanges and collaboration among countries and regions involved in the BRI in digital technology, digital infrastructure, and digital markets, so as to bridge the digital divide and jointly build a community with a shared future in cyberspace.
