Beijing News shell finance news (reporter promised) on the evening of March 23, at the teleconference of China Mobile’s 2021 annual performance conference, Yang Jie, chairman of China Mobile, said that the company was making some layout in this regard when talking about metaverse.
“First of all, metaverse should have a very strong infrastructure, computing power network and middle stage capability.” Yang Jie said, “the company’s new infrastructure now has three blocks: 5g, computing network and smart console. This is the necessary infrastructure for massive data in the next step, especially computing network. Now the company has made a comprehensive layout, and I think this is the most basic. Without the support of computing network, metaverse is obviously impossible to achieve.”
When asked whether the statement of “China Mobile’s foreign investment of 200 billion in three years” was real-time, Yang Jie said that it was all rumors, “I haven’t heard of it”. Yang Jie said that with regard to equity investment, the company’s foreign investment does have a certain scale, but it is carried out closely around the main business in accordance with the law. “Three sentences: value contribution, industry investment coordination and ecological construction, all of which have good coordination with the company and can play the role of mutual integration and mutual pull. In this regard, China Mobile continues to step on the same pace and give full play to the role of capital.” Yang Jie said.
