The term information and communication technology (ICT) can be taken to mean all devices, networking components, applications and systems that, when combined, allow people and organisations to interact in the digital world. ICT is leveraged for economic, societal and interpersonal transactions and interactions, and has drastically changed how people work, communicate, learn and live. Moreover, ICT continues to revolutionise all parts of the human experience as computers, and increasingly robots, carry out many of the tasks once handled by humans.

The ICT industry plays a fundamental role in economic and social developments that will benefit both Europe and China if both sides are committed to cooperate further. Advances in ICT enable an overall improved user experience, making peoples’ lives more convenient, and are essential for the successful transformation and upgrading of other industries such as manufacturing, mobility and financial services. This will be achieved through improved efficiency guaranteed security. Additionally, ICT is essential for many new developmental areas, such as the Internet of things (IoT) and smart cities, to take off.
