Self description: "Summary: Chinese efforts to popularize and boost the
Chinese language presence on the Internet through a low-cost domestic-only
service, a convenient non-registration Internet service added to the
telephone bill, and increased Chinese language content will likely push the
total number of Chinese users to over 5 million by the year 2000. [...] The
PRC government strives to assure China’s place in what it sees as the
coming global 'information-based economy' by promoting information
networks. [...]"
