China's new generation: Hopes, dreams and aspirations

With virtual reality, cloud computing and internet of things becoming the buzzwords of today's world, you might think that those born in the same age as these new disruptive technologies would prefer these modern-day 24/7 companions. Well, you couldn't be more out of step.

According to a latest survey, this 21st century tech generation cares more about traditional values such as family and friendship.

A report by China Youth and Children Research Center released on Wednesday provides insight into the traits of the generation born after 2000 and also compares them with their predecessor - the so-called post-90s generation.

The results are based on surveys conducted in 10 provinces and municipalities mainly in 2005 and 2015 and partly in 1999 and 2010. The 2015 study was conducted among 162 primary and secondary schools in rural and urban areas of Beijing, Guangdong, Shanghai, Shandong, Liaoning, Henan, Hunan, Sichuan, Yunnan and Shaanxi, with 9,360 valid responses.

Here are the five major traits of this new generation.
