London, Nov.25 (ANI): The Internet has become an increasingly important platform for the Chinese to express opinions on government policies and social issues, a senior Internet regulator has said.

"You can compare China with Western countries. Chinese people have easy rein to express their opinions," Liu Zhengrong, deputy chief of the Internet Affairs Bureau of the State Council Information Office (SCIO), told China Daily.

Liu said the Internet has satisfied Chinese people's demand for information, enriched their lives and opened a convenient channel for people to express their ideas, and to observe and participate in state affairs.

In the future, China and Britain should improve communication between industrial organizations in the two countries, strengthening coordination and punishment on security incidents, such as hacking and pornography, to create together a safe and reliable Internet environment, he said.

China is no different from Western nations such as the United States and Britain in the methods it uses to regulate the Internet, said Liu. (ANI)
