In recent years, Internet, big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, block chain, and other technologies have rapidly advanced and increasingly integrated into the entire process of economic and social development. The development of the digital economy is unprecedented in terms of speed, scope, and depth of influence. It is becoming a key force in reorganizing factors of production worldwide, reshaping the global economic structure, and changing the global competition landscape.

NetDragon started its education business in 2010 and has expanded its presence in the education market to cover 192 countries and regions worldwide through mergers, investments, and other means. It has forged strategic cooperation with more than 20 countries along the "Belt and Road" route, including Kazakhstan and Tajikistan in Central Asia.

Chen Hong introduced, "In 2018, NetDragon signed a memorandum of understanding with Tajikistan and launched comprehensive cooperation in three fields: national informatization, education informatization, and enterprise informatization. NetDragon has also established 20,000 classrooms equipped with Promethean interactive panels in Kazakhstan, providing more efficient and convenient online training services."

As a leading enterprise and representative in the field of global digital education expansion, NetDragon was invited to share the successful experience of "education going global". As a keynote speaker at the roundtable forum, Chen Hong emphasized that in today's international community, we are increasingly interconnected and interdependent. The same principle applies to businesses when engaging in international cooperation. By adopting a new perspective of "a community with a shared future for mankind," we can seek common interests and value in order to achieve consensus and win-win outcomes. In summary, we should persist in using technology to promote digital education, tailor customized digital education products and solutions based on the local context, and empower partners with digital education literacy to achieve mutual creation and success.
