Bai Lixin, founder of Zhiliangzhi Siheyuan, said that Wang Yangming philosophy could help regulate the Internet world, and develop positive initiatives from the entrepreneurs of the Internet age. He declared that the Internet world needs more virtue and responsibility, and that companies should pay more attention to the connections between people when pursuing innovation and high technology. All entrepreneurs should help build a more beautiful Internet world for all generations.
Some of them shared their experience and exchanged ideas about how to use Internet technologies to reduce costs, improve efficiency and boost sustainable growth in various industries - including healthcare, catering and food, education, manufacturing, community service and agriculture.
Joe Weinman, who brought up the idea of Cloud Economics, delivered a speech on corporate strategy and the new economy of Internet Plus.

There will be good future for applying innovative and high technologies in Chinese traditional industries.
