In the process of fighting against the new Crown pneumonia epidemic, digital economy has played an irreplaceable positive role and become a new engine to promote China's economic and social development. "Opinions" put forward in the general requirements that the new business status and new model supporting the integration of online and offline should be taken as an important breakthrough for economic transformation and promoting reform and innovation, breaking the traditional inertial thinking.

How do you view the background of "opinions? Compared with previous measures to support the development of digital economy, what are the characteristics of the new document? Relevant experts understand this.

Digital economy welcomes opportunities and new policies arouse innovation initiative

"Digital economy is actually an economic form driven and promoted by digital productivity." Speaking of the understanding of digital economy, Gong Ke, chairman of the world engineering organization Federation and executive director of China's New Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Strategy Research Institute, said at the 2020 Global Forum on digital economy for small and medium-sized enterprises held recently.

Gong Ke believes that the development of digitalization and networking has brought a large amount of data, and data has become a factor of production. Dealing with such production factors requires tools, which are digital technologies. On this basis, the production and life also need infrastructure, which is the so-called new infrastructure.

The newly released opinion attracts the most attention that it includes 15 new modes of digital economy in its support scope.

Specifically, it includes: vigorously developing integrated online education; Actively developing Internet medical treatment; Encouraging the development of convenient online office; Continuously improving the level of digital governance; Cultivating industrial platform development ecology; Accelerating the pace of digital transformation of traditional enterprises; create virtual industrial parks and industrial clusters across physical boundaries; Develop unmanned economy based on new technologies.

In addition, it also includes: actively cultivating new individuals and supporting independent employment; Vigorously developing micro-economy and encouraging sideline innovation; Strengthening the protection of labor rights and interests in flexible employment, exploring multi-point practice; Expanding new space for shared life; create a new driving force for shared production; Explore a new mode for the sharing of production materials; Stimulate new vitality in the circulation of data elements.

In Gong Ke's view, after the emergence of the new Crown pneumonia epidemic, people need to maintain social distance and reduce contact, which brings opportunities to the development of digital economy. For example, online learning, online meetings, and online exhibitions enable more people to experience digital life, production, and work, and accelerate the digital process.

"A large number of new business forms and new modes have emerged rapidly, which have played an irreplaceable role in assisting epidemic prevention and control, ensuring people's livelihood, hedging the pressure of the industry, driving economic recovery, supporting stable employment, etc, new business status and new mode have created a large number of new jobs and opened up new channels for innovation and wealth creation for the masses." When talking about the background of the "opinions", the relevant person in charge of the innovation and high-tech development department of the National Development and Reform Commission said.

Therefore, the promulgation of the "opinions" is also to implement the decision-making arrangements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, to do a solid job in the "six stability" work, to implement the "six guarantees" task, and to further mobilize the innovative enthusiasm of the market Main body, stimulate the vitality of the market and effectively support the policy guarantee of employment.

Eliminate constraints and foster a digital transformation ecosystem

"During this new pneumonia epidemic, the digital economy played an increasingly important role in supporting the 'six stable' and 'six insurance." The person in charge of the above-mentioned innovation and high-tech development department of the National Development and Reform Commission said.

However, it should also be noted that there are still many constraints to be broken in embracing the digital economy.

"China has entered the stage of deep integration of the internet, big data, artificial intelligence and the real economy. With the continuous development of advanced productivity such as 5G, artificial intelligence, and modern logistics, some traditional inertial thinking and policy systems have been difficult to adapt to development needs." The person in charge introduced that "opinions" mainly introduced measures from four aspects to eliminate the constraints faced by the development of new business status and new mode and create a good development environment.

In terms of strengthening collaboration in digital transformation and further improving the benefits of digital transformation, the person in charge said that at present, some small, medium and micro enterprises are facing the "transformation is to die" in the digital transformation, the dilemma of "not turning is waiting for death. We need to improve the public service capability of digital transformation, cultivate the digital transformation ecology, and improve the transformation efficiency.

"During the development of digital economy, we should pay full attention to small and medium-sized enterprises." Gong Ke believes that small and medium-sized enterprises should successfully complete the digital transformation as an important task to promote the digital economy. Many small and medium-sized enterprises still face many difficulties in the process of digital transformation. The current countermeasures include establishing an open innovation platform and adopting an open source model, which may lower the threshold for the digital transformation of small and medium-sized enterprises.
