A big majority of China’s Internet-based media representatives have called for strengthening self-discipline in order to ensure a smooth and healthy ascent of China’s Web business, and to facilitate information dissemination.

Chief executives from China’s overseas-listed Internet firms, and sector experts said at a seminar in Hainan that the fact that China is home to 111 million Internet-hooked population, the world’s second largest after the United States, testifies to the effective and benign policies, that benefits its rapid development.

However, it remains an arduous task on their shoulders to continue to oversee and ferret out “illegal and harmful” information, typically obscene and pornographic content, that poisons the young and vulnerable, especially the

children.

Experts and sector representatives have expressed the hope that the government should improve the legal framework to better guide its progressive growth. They said that some self-governing rules by the Internet firms on forbidding porn and illegal information have been well-received by the public.
