The digital economy will become a key ingredient of national strategy during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25), experts in the technology sector said.
科技行业专家表示,数字经济将成为"十四五"期间国家发展战略中的关键部分。

根据中国政府最新公布的"十四五"规划纲要,2025年我国数字经济核心产业增加值占GDP比重将提升至10%。

东方证券首席经济学家邵宇指出,"十四五"规划纲要将建设数字中国作为独立篇章是一个明确信号,数字经济的重要性日趋显著,将驱动经济增长、赋能各行各业。

>Third COVID wave sweeps EU

欧多国被迫重启封锁令

A third wave of the COVID pandemic is now advancing swiftly across much of Europe.
第三轮新冠疫情如今正席卷欧洲大部分国家。

As a result, many nations – bogged down by sluggish vaccination campaigns – are witnessing sharp rises in infection rates and case counts.
随之而来的是,由于疫苗接种项目停滞不前而陷入困境的多个国家正经历感染率和确诊病例数量的急剧上升。

欧盟国家的感染率目前达到了二月初以来的最高水平。近期确诊病例的飙升很大程度被归咎于新冠病毒新变种的传播。
