As the nucleus for the digital economy and society as a whole, digital infrastructure forms the foundation for the higher layers in all value chains and is becoming ever more imperative as digital transformation surges. Without high-speed networks and highly secure, available, and reliable data centers, there can be no digitalization.

To boost the profile of women in the Internet industry, we are particularly keen to have the voices of women heard in our industry insights.
