The proportion of the digital economy will reach 20% of GDP, and the proportion of the digital economy in each industry or field will reach at least 10%. By the year, over 50% of the population will have at least one electronic payment account, and the country will deploy 5G services in at least three smart cities in three key northern, central and southern economic regions.
