On the morning of November 8, the Light of Internet Expo, part of the 2022 World Internet Conference (WIC), kicked off in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province. The expo was co-hosted by the WIC and the People's Government of Zhejiang Province, and was co-supported by the Cyberspace Administration of China, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

With the theme of "Toward a Shared Digital Future in a Connected World", this year's expo focused on seeking advance, change and innovation, with 3 major sections for exhibition, new product and technology release, as well as talent recruitment. 415 domestic and foreign companies and institutions from 40 countries and regions participated in on-site and online exhibitions. 74 companies released new products, new technologies and theoretical achievements during the expo, and 1,074 companies recruited more than 38,000 professional and technical personnel through the online recruitment platform for digital economy talents.

The Light of Internet Expo, an important functional part of the WIC Wuzhen Summit, had a large number of cutting-edge technological products and the latest applications of digital reform displayed this year.

It is worth mentioning that among visitors, there was an abiding interest in Jilin elements at the expo. The Hongqi EV, an autonomous vehicle on display, is China's first mass-produced L4 autonomous passenger vehicle jointly developed by Baidu Inc and FAW Group. The vehicle is equipped with a lidar for the collection of data within a detection range of 240 meters. The collected data will be transmitted to the computing center of the vehicle to make decisions on driving.
