China is aiming for 10% of its gross domestic product to come from the digital economy by 2025, up from 7.8% in 2020. As part of its 14th Five Year Plan, Beijing says that this will come from technologies like big data and 6G mobile internet, even though that is some years away. The ambition highlights China’s push to get ahead in new technology as it continues a rivalry with the U.S. in areas from semiconductors to artificial intelligence.
