Gong Fuwen, member of the CPPCC National Committee, NPC and CPPCC, should face up to the capital accumulation and conceptual bubble in the Metaverse concept and pay close attention to potential risks in ethics and monopoly.

Our reporter Chen Jialing reports from Beijing

On March 4, 2022, the fifth session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee opened. Members of the National Committee of the Chinese people’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) stepped into the magnificent Great Hall of the people with the proposals condensed from their in-depth investigation and collection of people’s feelings, people’s livelihood and public opinion over the past year and their performance of their duties.

On March 3, Gong Fuwen, member of the National Committee of the Chinese people’s Political Consultative Conference, member of the Central Committee of the rural labor party and vice president of the higher people’s Court of Shaanxi Province, shared a number of proposals brought by the two sessions of this year in an interview with China business daily, These include consolidating the cornerstone of the rule of law to boost the development of free trade, strengthening the judicial guarantee of national standardization strategy in the field of communication, adhering to the “three directions” in the promotion of digital RMB pilot, and looking forward to layout metaverse to create new advantages of digital economy.

It is worth noting that during the ten years of performing his duties as a member of the 12th and 13th CPPCC National Committees, this CPPCC member with the experience of “three Chiefs” (president of the law school, deputy Procurator General of the provincial procuratorate and vice president of the Provincial Higher People’s court) submitted more than 120 high-quality proposals at the two sessions of the country. Among them, 20 proposals were adopted by the relevant guiding opinions of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, 30 proposals were adopted by the relevant laws of the National People’s Congress, 15 proposals were adopted by the government work report and relevant administrative regulations and departmental rules, and 10 proposals were adopted by the relevant judicial interpretations of the Supreme People’s court and the Supreme People’s Procuratorate, Three proposals were selected and commended as “excellent proposals” and “good proposals of 2020” by the CPPCC National Committee.

This is mainly because his proposal has accurate topic selection, reflects major events, in-depth research, well founded, specific suggestions and high quality.

The proposal that “runs out” is “flesh and blood”

The in-depth front-line field investigation is an epitome of the conscientiousness of CPPCC members in performing their duties.

“Today, I want to know about the construction and development of Shaanxi free trade zone and see what else we need to reflect…” on the morning of March 1, Gong Fuwen came to Shaanxi Provincial Department of Commerce to have a discussion with the relevant principals of Shaanxi Provincial free trade office.

From effectiveness to weakness, from problems to suggestions, more than two hours of in-depth and enthusiastic conversation. After leaving the Provincial Department of Commerce, Gong Fuwen hurried to Shaanxi foreign business service center for investigation.

On March 2, when the reporter of China business daily contacted Gong Fuwen to understand the contents of the proposal of the two sessions this year, he replied: “it is being revised!” It is understood that before the national two sessions every year, Gong Fuwen will take time to visit units and enterprises to understand the situation, supplement and improve the proposal, and write the proposal more accurately and grounded.

“Only the proposals that come out are ‘flesh and blood’.” Gong Fuwen said with deep feeling. On March 3, 2021, Gong Fuwen not only accepted the reporter’s online interview on the high-speed railway arriving in Beijing, but also discussed and revised the proposal with other members along the way. On March 3, 2022, on the high-speed railway that also rushed to the venue of the two sessions of the National People’s Congress, Gong Fuwen discussed proposals such as blockchain, metaverse and digital economy with Wang Qian, member of the CPPCC National Committee and general manager of Shaanxi big data group Co., Ltd.

Combined with the above research and work practice, Gong Fuwen submitted a proposal on consolidating the cornerstone of the rule of law and boosting the development of free trade at the two sessions this year.

“As China enters a new era driven by reform and the rule of law, the free trade zone has developed from ‘one branch alone’ to ‘wild geese flying together’. The rule of law is the key to how to actively respond to the new situation, create an international, market-oriented and legal business environment for the free trade zone, and build a free trade zone with international standards, convenient investment and trade, efficient and convenient supervision and standardized legal environment Link. ” Therefore, Gong Fuwen suggested to improve the legislation of the free trade zone; Formulate the trial rules of the free trade zone; Implement the interim arbitration mechanism of the free trade zone; Build an “ecosystem” of legal services in the free trade zone.

Gong Fuwen told our reporter: “The pilot applications of the national ’14th National Games’ in 2021 and the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022 have aroused great attention and full recognition of the digital RMB all over the world. Combined with the recent in-depth investigation of the pilot situation, I suggest that in the next digital RMB pilot work, we should adhere to the’ scene orientation ‘,’ innovation orientation ‘and’ effectiveness orientation ‘. Specifically, we should increase the digital RMB The opening of government scenes, speeding up the construction of digital RMB high-frequency scenes and enriching the application dimensions of digital RMB characteristic scenes; Accelerate financial inclusive innovation and steadily explore cross-border application innovation; Adhere to the combination of quantity and quality. “

In fact, five years ago, Gong Fuwen began his research on the work of “digital RMB”. At the two sessions of the National People’s Congress last year, his proposal that the digital RMB pilot should “grasp the top level, pay attention to universal benefits and prevent risks” attracted the attention of all parties.

Closely follow the new issues of economic and social development

Many of Gong Fuwen’s proposals contain forward-looking thinking and have undergone long-term follow-up research.

For example, as early as 2016, Gong Fuwen began to pay attention to blockchain. At the national two sessions in 2019, he submitted a proposal on vigorously promoting the innovation and development of blockchain technology, and put forward suggestions on the advanced layout of the application of blockchain technology in the financial industry and copyright protection, electronic deposit and certificate, financial audit and other industries, and promoting the real economy with the help of blockchain technology, reducing intermediate links, reducing transaction costs and improving service quality.

In 2019, “blockchain” attracted wide attention. Gong Fuwen turned his attention to improving the regulatory model, strengthening legal protection and promoting the better development of this technology, and submitted relevant proposals at the national two sessions in 2020.

At the two sessions this year, Gong Fuwen focused on the digital economy. He believes that at present, the changes in the past century and the epidemic situation in the 21st century are intertwined and superimposed, economic globalization encounters a countercurrent, a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial reform accelerate the evolution, and the forward-looking layout and development of metaverse is an important practical path to expand and strengthen the digital economy, seize the commanding heights of future competition and grasp the initiative of development.

The word “metaverse” is one of the hot words in recent years, and the discussion heat related to it has been high. Gong Fuwen believes that we should rationally look at the new round of digital economy boom triggered by metaverse and its social impact. Facing the problems of capital accumulation, public opinion speculation, concept bubble and inadequate supervision, we pay close attention to potential risks in ethics, monopoly, computing power, privacy and intellectual property rights.

For the forward-looking layout of metaverse, Gong Fuwen put forward four suggestions: first, speed up the construction of new digital infrastructure and lay a solid foundation for the development of metaverse. The second is to strengthen the research on key core technologies and control the safety lifeline of metaverse. Third, deepen the exploration and application of blockchain and expand metaverse enabling scenarios. Fourth, strengthen the comprehensive management of digital economy and escort metaverse to go steady and far.

“The development of digital economy depends on the establishment of a complete standardized station in the field of communication. It is necessary to give full play to the function of judicial guarantee, deeply integrate the judicial work into the overall situation of national development, and take the five development concepts of service innovation, coordination, green, openness and sharing as the overall idea to ensure the healthy and sound development of the field of communication under the background of the era of data economy.” Therefore, Gong Fuwen put forward the proposal of “strengthening the judicial guarantee of national standardization strategy in the field of communication” in combination with his own specialty, including using the deterrent and coercive force of judicial justice to ensure the healthy development of China’s communication industry; Strengthen the coordination between the judiciary and all sectors of society to ensure the orderly development of the communication industry; And strengthen international communication and cooperation, create a good judicial environment, and promote China’s status and influence in the international standards organization.
