From January to June, the total revenue of the electronic information manufacturing industry, software industry, communication industry and the Internet exceeded 10 trillion yuan. Second, the process of industrial digital transformation has been accelerated and upgraded. We focused on deepening the integration of new-generation information technology and manufacturing industry, and took a firmer step in the innovation and development of the industrial Internet. The 512 project of “5G + Industrial Internet” was further advanced, with more than 3,100 construction projects, including 700 new projects in the second quarter. Implementing intelligent manufacturing projects, there are more than 6,000 incubation solution providers, and their service scope covers more than 90% of the manufacturing industry. The numerical control rate of key processes and the penetration rate of digital R&D and design tools in industrial enterprises above designated size have reached 55.7% and 75.1% respectively. Traditional The process of industrial digital transformation and upgrading has been further accelerated.
IT House learned that Wang Peng pointed out that in the next step, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will continue to make efforts in the following five aspects, and strive to build a good industrial policy environment for the development of the digital economy.

The third is to meet the application needs of the industry and promote the integration of the digital economy and the real economy. Carry out in-depth manufacturing digital transformation actions and SMEs digital empowerment actions, expand industrial big data application scenarios, cultivate a group of “specialized, special and innovative” SMEs and single champion enterprises in manufacturing, and build a pattern of integrated development of large and medium-sized enterprises.
The fourth is to stimulate the vitality and potential of data elements and enhance the new kinetic energy of economic development. Support central enterprises and Internet companies to open up their markets urgently need data, select a group of regions and industries to carry out pilot implementation of national standards for data management, and improve the volume and quality of data supply across the country. Publish the guidelines for data element application scenarios to consolidate the guarantee of data element circulation.
The fifth is to strengthen the governance of the digital economy and create a sound industrial development ecology. Focus on building systems, strengthening supervision, ensuring security, and improving digital economy governance capabilities. Deepen international cooperation in the field of digital economy, work together to create an open, fair, just, and non-discriminatory digital economy development environment, and promote the building of a community of shared future in cyberspace.
