A Common term “global internet”: China’s Xi says country will not close door to global internet

China’s Xi says country will not close door to global internet
“WUZHEN, China (Reuters) – Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Sunday the country will not close its door to the global internet, but that cyber sovereignty is key in its vision of internet development…..“The development of China’s cyberspace is entering a fast lane…China’s doors will only become more and more open,” said Xi in the note. Cyber sovereignty is the idea that states should be permitted to manage and contain their own internet without external interference. China’s Communist Party has tightened cyber regulation in the past year, formalizing new rules that require firms to store data locally and censor tools that allow users to subvert the Great Firewall. In June, China introduced a new national cybersecurity law that requires foreign firms to store data locally and submit to data surveillance measures.””China has advocated strongly for a larger role in global internet governance under Xi. “China stands ready to develop new rules and systems of internet governance to serve all parties and counteract current imbalances,” said Wang Huning, a member of the Communist Party standing committee at the event on Sunday.”
A nation on a bold mission that is boldly declares! Even with the transition, and perhaps out of it,  we expect more nations to demand a legitimate sit on the “Internet development table” or chisel out newer tables or both.
It should not pass unnoticed that we now have a common term “global internet” meaning that this may be acceptance that there may be fragments of it or a much bigger one or an attempt by the Internet Governance ecosystem to insist that the “global internet” is the Internet.Be blessed.Regards/Wangari—
