Speaking of his new appointment, Mr Wang says that in the information age Internet is the fundamental basis of growth.

Mr. Wang is confident that launch of IDNs will greatly incentivise the Chinese Internet consumer markets.

Why IDNs for China? As compared against ASCII domain names, an average Chinese consumer will find Chinese domain names much easier to remember and culturally more meaningful. In fact, Chinese Internet user will be key in websites in Chinese language to visit intended websites directly without the difficulty of unfamiliar ASCII characters. For the Chinese businesses, IDN will be exceptionally suited as a branding tool for them to directly reach out to their Internet customers.
