The Office of the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission on Wednesday released a proposal on safeguarding cyberspace from disinformation together with other relevant entities and platforms.

The commission said the proposal was issued amid the COVID-19 pandemic as China’s cyberspace had witnessed the circulation of various forms of disinformation, which had grossly misled public opinion and infringed on the netizens’ legitimate rights.

“It has become a general consensus that efforts should be made to address the issue of internet disinformation and create a purified eco-system in cyberspace.

“Every subject involved in internet activities should abide by relevant laws, regulations and public moral codes and resolutely oppose the production and transmission of cyberspace disinformation.’’

The commission also outlined efforts to enhance the primary responsibility for internet platforms and raise public awareness of the rule of law and science to better harness the internet.
