Chinese Premier Li Qiang on Wednesday urged major internet firms, including Alibaba Cloud, Meituan, and ByteDance-owned Douyin, to contribute to the country’s economic growth and international competitiveness. This call was made during the first symposium that specifically focused on platform economic development since new top government leaders took office in March. The stated objective of the meeting was to explore ways to promote the standardized, healthy, and sustainable development of the platform economy. During the meeting, Premier Li emphasized the importance of establishing a “transparent, predictable, and regular regulatory framework” at all levels of government to promote the industry’s healthy development.
