China’s President Xi Calls Blockchain a “New Generation of Information Technology”

Tue May 29, 2018 2:52 pm

Xi Jinping, President of the world’s most populous country and the world’s second biggest economy, has become the world’s most senior global figure to mention blockchain technology in a speech at the opening of the joint annual conference of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Addressing China’s scientific and engineering elites, Xi opened with: “Academicians, comrades and friends!” Then added, and we quote a rough translation:

“Since entering the 21st century, global scientific and technological innovation has entered an unprecedented period of intensive activity.

A new round of scientific and technological revolutions and industrial changes are reconstructing the global innovation map and reshaping the global economic structure.

The new generation of information technology represented by artificial intelligence, quantum information, mobile communication, internet of things, and blockchain accelerate the breakthrough in application and bred new life science fields represented by synthetic biology, gene editing, brain science, and regenerative medicine.”
