BEIJING (Reuters) – China will speed up establishment of a comprehensive internet governance system and build a solid national cyber security barrier, the cyberspace regulator said on Thursday.

China will win the battle for core technologies in the information field, it said in a statement on its website.

It also stressed the need to expand and strengthen mainstream online opinion.
