In August 2001, China established the State Informatization Leading Group (SILG) and the State Council Informatization Office (SCITO), headed by the premier of the State Council, China’s Cabinet. During the Tenth Five-Year Plan (2001-2005) period, SILG had formulated strategies and made a series of important decisions and plans for mid- and long-term development. The ceaseless endeavors over the last few years have resulted in remarkable achievements, representing a great leap forward in carrying out informatization with Chinese characteristics and ushering China into a new phase of overall, diversified development.
